Ceramics - Throwing, Tiles And Press Moulds Taster


Ideal as an introduction to working with clay using a selection of approaches.

About this Event

Cyan Clayworks is an artist-run, non profit studio and teaching space. This three hour introductory class is suitable for adult beginners, and will focus on tile making, press moulded dishes and wheel throwing. Each student will be introduced to the basics of throwing; centering the clay, and forming a small vessel each. You will be able to create a small group of unique textured and coloured slip decorated tiles and a pressmoulded dish using one of our moulds.

Limited class sizes with both Fiona and Chris teaching so lots of hands on support! You will be given one to one support while on the wheel.

Your work will be trimmed (wheelthrown pots), fired and glazed ready to collect a few weeks later. You'll be notified by email and will then have a month to collect your pieces.

£60 per person, inclusive of booking fee, materials, preparation, glazing and firings.

About Cyan Clayworks

Cyan Clayworks
Cyan Clayworks
Cyan Clayworks is a working ceramics studio and social enterprise, where we make tableware (Chris) and sculptural handbuilt vessels (Fiona). Both of us have been working in ceramics since the mid 1990s, making work for exhibition, teaching, working in community settings, and undertaking commissions. At the studio we offer regular courses for adults, bespoke workshops, and individual tuition. We have also worked with professional artists, designers and students. Other services include a membership for keen amateurs who want to access the studio to make work untutored. All services must be booked in advance. Visitors are welcome (but strictly by appointment only); get in touch to arrange a visit.
