9.30am – 4.30pm (lunch included)

Tutor: Mirka Golden-Hann

Course description:

This is a two-day course for students who no longer consider themselves beginners on the potter’s wheel and who would like to try assembling larger, more complex pots from component parts.  Projects could include such forms as large vases or jars, harvest jugs, urns, teapots, and any other vessels that students may suggest.  The amount of clay will vary according to the particular project, with as much as 8 kilograms for the components of larger projects.

Mirka Golden- Hann is a ceramic artist and teacher with over 20 years experience of running a pottery studio. After graduating from the University of Westminster, Harrow Ceramics in 1999 She set up her first workshop and built a salt-kiln in 1999.

The cost of biscuit firing 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 additional cost.

We recommend that you book a glaze session to glaze your work, or you can ask us to glaze your work for you in one of our glazes. A small studio fee applies.

If you wish to collect your biscuit fired work, you can do this three weeks after the course.

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 is intended for adults but might be attended by students aged 16+ providing that they come together with an adult who is also a member of the class.
