Two day workshop with Jeremy Peake
Saturday 13 August and Saturday 27 August 2022

Book a space for the course via Eventbrite here.

In this two day workshop, you will widen your creative pottery skills and learn about the raku firing process.

On the first day of the workshop you will be hand-building pots (wheels are available for students who already know how to throw). Returning to Wysing two weeks later (so that your pot can dry and be biscuit fired), you will then glaze, decorate and finish it, firing it in a raku kiln.

Suitable for those with some basic experience of pottery.

Pot Making and Raku Firing

Safety Notes: Wear clothing suitable for messy work. On the second day when the firing process is involved, Wysing will provide you with the necessary safety-wear.

Materials: All materials provided.

Format: Two day course 10.00am-4pm with a break for lunch. First session Saturday 13 August 2022, second session Saturday 27 August 2022. There are two weeks between the sessions to allow for clay works to dry before being fired.

Lunch: Please bring your own packed lunch. Tea, coffee and water will be available throughout the day.
