Emily Myers is an established Studio Potter, Fellow of The Craft Potters Association and Crafts Council selected maker. She works in porcelain and red stoneware clay. Emily’s pieces are often carved and fired with beautiful glazes and can be seen in numerous venues and galleries nation wide.
This two-day workshop is intended for anyone who would like to start learning or improve their skills when working on the potter’s wheel. On the first day you will be throwing an array of forms through which you will be practising and pushing your ability. The following day you will be turning your pots, learning and practising turning of foot rings. You will also explore how to carve the surface through fluting and faceting.
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. Extra work can be fired at an 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. Small studio fee will apply.
If you wish to collect your biscuit fired work, you can do this three weeks after the course.
This course may be attended by students aged 14+ providing that they come with an adult who is also a member of the class
