Kiln 2 Pottery pic 1 0011

A six-week, course, welcoming all potters, from complete beginners to artists experienced with clay.  Those new to the medium will receive a secure grounding in the basic skills and methods involved in making and decorating clay; and those with existing knowledge and experience will receive the stimulus and any assistance they need to develop their skills and refine their competency.  Different clays, along with a variety of techniques will be explored, as well as introduction to and use of the kiln.

The Portico gallery has two Raku kilns, a large standard kiln and plenty of, indoor and outdoor, studio space and storage. Course costs include standard clays, glazing and firing, use of all equipment and tools, and also storage of work – which must be dried thoroughly before biscuit firing and then glazed and either Raku or standard fired!

Kiln’it takes place one evening a week, from 6:30pm to 9:00pm and costs £140.
