Clay Intensive: Introduction to Handbuilding

Our short clay intensives are suitable for absolute beginners – no previous experience necessary.

This session covers a range of core handbuilding techniques and processes. In two hours you’ll make three pots using three methods of construction.

You’ll make a series of small functional pots. You’ll learn how to manipulate soft and firm clay; you’ll develop an understanding of how to adapt techniques and processes in response to different consistencies of clay; and explore different methods of moulding, assembling and constructing pots. It’ll be fast and fun.

Includes:

  • Materials.
  • Post production costs: firings and glazing service.
  • Packaging. Postage is not included.
  • Booking fees.

Looking for a gift? We also sell Pottery and Throwing Experience e-Vouchers and Voucher Packs. Visit our Gift and Gather pages for further details.

This experience is for adults (18+) only.

Finished works, fired and glazed (where needed), will be available for collection from the workshop venue within 28 days after the session. If you are unable to collect we can arrange for your work to be delivered for £10 per address.

It’s standard workshop practice to wear flat, sturdy shoes with covered toes. Please protect your feet.

Ceramics Taster: Press

Do and do again.

PRESS is an introduction to small batch production. You’ll explore how to reproduce shapes using plaster moulds and then customise your pieces with wire loop cutting tools. This one is for biophiliacs: you’ll be making small indoor planters – ideal for succulents and other small plants.

Press moulding is a quasi-industrial method of production. Moulds enable the consistent repetition of form but have the flexibility to act as starting points for further adaptation.

Prerequisites: none, designed for beginners or anyone wanting to refine existing skills.

Includes:

  • Materials.
  • Post production costs: firings and glazing service.
  • Packaging. Postage is not included.

Ceramics Taster: Whittle

Spoons – measuring, eating, serving and stirring. Have you got a favourite? If not, come and make one.

Here at Sunken Studio we’re partial to making a tool or two and we love making spoons. It’s just a bowl with a handle but they are wonderfully tactile and sculptural. Make something by hand for the hand – there’s something reassuring and comforting about this modest utensil.

You’ll consider form and function and we’ll help you design and make a small but elegant clay spoon. It’ll rest gracefully when placed and do the job.

Prerequisites: none, designed for beginners or anyone wanting to refine existing skills.

Ceramics Taster: Coil

Roll it, bend it… just a little bit & shape it…

COIL is an energetic and spirited introduction to coil building. You’ll compete with each other to make the most even, longest and thinnest coils, and then race to build bottles and outdo each other’s technical prowess. You’ll learn how to regulate pressure to roll your own coils and build striking forms – we’ll be celebrating a bit of healthy rivalry.

Coil pots are built using lengths of clay fixed together – a line is taken on a journey. What constitutes a coil pot can be open to interpretation: traditionally they are made using cylindrical lengths placed on top of each other. Layers are often directional and rhythmical – introducing visual and tactile patterns as well as demanding systematic approaches to making. Managing the plasticity of clay at all stages of the process can equate to agility training for potters.

Prerequisites: none, designed for beginners or anyone wanting to refine existing skills.
