Pottery Classes Telford

I can now offer pottery classes in my fab new pottery studio which I built during the pandemic. The build took from October till the end of March this year.  At the end of March I moved in and have been enjoying the space.  It is right down the back of my garden and it is very tranquil and the ideal environment for learning pottery.   There is also a secret garden which those who visit will be able to see.  And if you get lucky you might get to see the resident squirrel Barney.

My Pottery Studio - The Hartshill Clay Resort

Pottery Studio Telford

The pottery studio has a potters wheel,  a slab roller, extruder gun, spray booth and a large kiln.  I actually have 3 kilns. Most importantly I have plenty of enthusiasm to teach.  Everybody needs to experience the power of creating with clay!    As I am getting known as ‘The flower Lady’ it only makes sense my first classes are flower making.  Plus I believe I can teach ANYONE to make a flower out of clay.  Don’t believe me?  Book a course.

Studio Pottery Lessons

All classes are £20 an hour per person.  If you would like to come along, use my clay, create what you want then you are more than welcome.  There is no pressure and you can make whatever you wish.  I can direct you and advice you on techniques I have learnt over the years.

Flower Making Course Details

In time I will create a number of clay classes but for now I am just offering a Flower Making Course.  The details are below:

Time

I am pretty flexible so can do 2 or 3 hour slots at times to suit you.  Call me on 07813 258286 to see what I have available.

Not available from 20th June – 27th June

What you will learn?

I will teach you how to make flowers that can then either go on stems or sit alone. The cost will include firing them.  If you would like to colour and glaze them you will need to come back once they have been ‘biscuit firing’ (first firing of any pottery).  You can then take them away and colour them yourself, but if you want to add ceramic colour and glaze you will need to pay for another session.  Once the flowers have had the second glaze firing, you will need to visit a third time to either put the stems on (free mini session) or collect if you wish me to put on stems.  All that is left is for you to proudly display your flowers in your home or garden.

How much?

£25 per person per hour.  (2 x ‘2 hour’ sessions required for glazed flowers and stems £100).

What will I get after one session?

You will get to keep anything you make, either take home same day, or leave it to get fired.  I will be in touch for you to collect once it has been biscuit fired.

What will I get if I come back for a second session?

You will get to paint your flower with ceramic colour and dip in glaze ready for a second firing.  I will then fire it for you, and you can pick it up and put on stems.  I will provide up to 8 rods for the best 8 flowers made and green tape.  I can do this for you or your welcome to pop back to do it (no charge).  For those that want to put on stems themselves, I use the 1.6mm  stainless steal welding rods found here.  And this green parafilm waterproof florist tape.

How many people?

This class if for one or groups of 2, 3 or 4.

Aprons, Tea/Coffee and Cake/Biscuits provided.

Are there any minimum age requirements?

Mature children aged 10 and over.  Parents are welcome to stay and enjoy my garden weather purmitting.

Where is the Pottery Studio?

27 Hartshill Avenue, Oakengates, Telford, Shropshire, TF2 6AP.

Hartshill Avenue turns into a cul-de-sac. As you come down Hartshill Avenue you can go left or right.  GO LEFT and my house is just after turning LEFT.  If there is space on my drive you are welcome to park on that, or there is a patch of grass opposite my house (see image below).

Pottery Course Review

If you think you can’t possibly make a flower out of clay, think again.  There is no such word as can’t in my ceramic studio!  Anyone can make a rose, they are simple, trust me.  I am an expert flower maker/teacher and there is a knack which I will share.  My guinea pig was Vicky, my next-door neighbour.  She thought she didn’t have an artistic bone in her body.  Well she could make great flowers,  take a look what she said and the flowers she made completely on her own:
