And yet more news! It just keeps happening here in Stroud! With the opening of a new community craft centre in Lansdown, I’ll once again be offering kids (and teen/adult too of course) home-ed classes! At the moment the centre is being kitted out with all of the equipment and materials needed for a fully functioning teaching, workshop and studio space, accommodating ceramics, textiles, willow, a forge, a mask maker, jewellers and many more. The outside space will be developed (already a beautiful garden) to accommodate outside kilns, work spaces and the forge. My terms will be starting on a Friday, 4-5.30pm (spring start date tbc) so contact me if you’re interested for more details. Dawn, another wonderful pottery teacher will be offering kids classes earlier in the day on Fridays too, so you can pick you slot.
The terms will be around 10 weeks and provide the basics of working with clay, starting of with digging your own clay and cleaning it up to be used. We’ll make some collaborative work, some individual work, some sculptures and some functional pottery. Here are some images looking back on previous home-ed courses I’ve run in this wonderful space:
