Pottery classes are available at Tattershall Station Gallery and Pottery. Over a 6 week period, students have the opportunity to use the potter's wheel to develop throwing skills, learn about press mould dish making, use slabs to construct shapes and employ hand-building techniques. Various decorating methods and glazing instruction are provided as the course progresses. Finished items are fired and are taken home by their proud creators. Samples of students' work and their working environment are displayed below. The cost of this 6 week course, (each session lasting two hours), is £90.00, and does not necessarily have to run consecutively if the student knows of a prior engagement, which would otherwise, clash. Finished, fired pottery is an extra cost of one penny per two grams. Tea or coffee is included. Please contact us for further information.
A Pottery Experience
Looking for an unusual gift, mark a special occasion or just want to try your hand at potting with no long term commitment? We are able to offer "one off" pottery experiences for couples or small groups of friends and, or relations. Over the period of about three hours, participants will have the opportunity to throw on the potter's wheel and make a press-moulded dish. All of this will be under the guidance of experienced potter and teacher, Arthur Watson. Pottery made at this session will be subsequently glazed and fired, and available for the participant to keep. The fee for this special experience is £150.00 for up to 4 people, to include the cost of 3 finished pots. Additional pots at one penny per 2 grams, (clay, slip, glaze and firing in the kiln etc.). Tea or coffee will also be served.
Anyone interested, (available times and dates etc.), please contact us for details, and we shall be happy to elaborate.
