Practice sessions are exclusively for those who have already done a course with me (either a 5 week course or a full day course) and wish to come back and practice what they have learned previously. Places are available by prior booking only. Please do not just turn up without booking as I may not be there if nobody has booked to attend! You are welcome to use the wheels or hand build.
These sessions can take place on Monday mornings at 10:30am and also on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm. They run for two hours and are a great chance for you to experiment and challenge yourself. There is room for up to 6 people.
If you want any of your work firing and glazing, there is a small additional charge for this on top of the 'Practice Session' booking price. This additional price covers the cost of the clay, the glaze, two firings and technician time. A poster with the weights and prices for firing is on display in the studio.
Items you wish to have fired will be weighed after bisque firing to work out the cost. Payment for firing/glazing must be made at the bisque stage before the pots are glazed and have their final firing.
The practice sessions are NOT a tuition session, I will usually be doing my own work at the same time but will be around to give you pointers :)
Please make sure that after you have finished working, you clean up after yourself and leave the wheel/ table as you found it.
Only Fancy Frog Pottery clay can be used in these sessions. Firing is to earthenware temperature only, with a clear glaze. Coloured slips are available to use.
I reserve the right to not fire pieces I feel could be unsuitable for firing and consequently cause damage to the kiln.
Bookings must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
