AUGUST 17 & 18: Architectural Vessel with Jo Taylor

Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 August (two day course)
10am – 5pm (lunch included)


Course description:

This workshop is intended for beginners and improvers who are interested in exploring architecture as an inspiration for the vessel making. You will be encouraged to either hand build or to use the potter’s wheel with the emphasis on achieving straight linear vessel forms.

Recognised for her sculptural forms that combine different techniques including throwing and handbuilding, Jo Taylor has been making her unique ceramic work since graduating from Bath Spa University’s Master’s Degree in 2012. She is a qualified teacher, and has been delivering a range of regular courses and workshops since 2005.



The cost of one firing of the selection of your best work is included in the price of the course. The teacher will help you decide what your best work is and what the allowed quantity is. This will generally fill kiln space of (35x35x35)cm or one large piece. Extra work can be fired at an additional cost.

You will be using slips and raw glaze during the course. Your finished piece will be once fired to stoneware temperature to ensure that it is inert.

You can collect your fired work three weeks after the course.

If you would like to apply a dipping glaze to your work from this course we recommend that you speak to your tutor and book an extra glaze session to glaze your work.

We will store your work for up to six months. If you would like us to post the work to you, please let us know and we will arrange this at extra cost.

This course may be attended by students aged 16+ providing that they come with an adult who is also a member of the class
