In this introduction to pottery you’ll learn hand building techniques, decoration and how to use the moulds with the potter’s wheel. It’s the perfect workshop to de-stress! This course has the potential to be used as part of the ‘skill’ element in the Duke of Edinburgh award.
Tutor: Fiona Sandover
Fiona is a very experienced teacher of ceramics. She has taught in this field for more than 25 years to all ages and levels of ability. Her pottery practice is continuing to grow and she has her own fully equipped potters’ studio. The sessions that she runs are noted for their relaxed atmosphere and fun projects.
The pottery studio at the West End Centre is a lovely space and is well equipped. Attendees will be given access and tutoring to use the potters’ wheels. They will also be shown techniques both sculptural and functional. Everyone who attends is enabled to express their own creativity as well as being supported in tutor led projects.
“I enjoyed the freedom we had which was well balanced with guidance! I’m considering doing pottery for Duke of Edinburgh.”
