Ceramics Masterclass - Bottle Shapes

Wednesday, 25th May 7-9pm

£55 per person

Join us for the first of our ceramic masterclasses with local potter and ceramic artist, Jayne Potter. During this workshop, Jayne will teach how she throws her signature bottle shape.

Throwing gorgeous and shapely bottles on the wheel is a real pleasure but sometimes it can be a bit of a fiddle and faff! Jayne has developed her own style to throw bottles which are consistent in both size and shape and has developed this masterclass to share her expert hints and tips.

During this 2 hour class we will work through techniques including forming the base, shaping the bottle and the best part...the narrow neck.

This masterclass is sadly not suitable for beginners but potters who can centre and throw 1-1.5kg will really get the most from it. All intermediate potters are very welcome but if you aren't sure do just give us a shout and we can put you directly in touch with Jayne.

This class will be limited to 6 guests to ensure that everyone can really benefit from Jayne's time and expertise. We will be providing a wheel for each guest and clay but you will need to bring tools and a heat gun with you as we will not be able to supply these. After the class we will bisque fire one piece of your work, which you can collect a couple of weeks after the workshop.

You can find out more about Jayne's work and her wonderful ceramics business by visiting her website or instagram page.

Safety & Security

At the time of writing the local covid situation remains unpredictable so please rest assured that for all of our workshops we carefully consider both the safety of you, our guests, and that of our community of teachers as our main priority. We review national guidelines and recommendations daily and will be taking all the recommended steps to ensure your maximum safety.

Currently our indoor workshops are taking place with windows open and we expect people to wear masks whilst moving around the building. We ask that all guests bring their own hand sanitisers and hand towels to reduce the risk of cross contamination.

We are also constantly reviewing whether or not to serve refreshments at our workshops, making a final decision a few days before each individual workshop. You will be notified of the safety measures applicable to this workshop via an email a few days before the workshop is due to take place and if necessary we reserve the right to change them at very short notice should the covid situation change. This is undoubtedly our least favourite part of running workshops, and certainly not something we envisaged when we started our business 4 years ago but it is absolutely vital that we keep you as safe as possible. We hope you understand.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Barn,
