Succulent or Cactus Pot Workshop - Thursday 22nd July 2021: 9.00am – 12:00noon

Slabbed Vase Workshop - Thursday 29th July 2021: 9.00am – 12:00noon

These workshops provides a wonderful opportunity to make a very special pot for a succulent or cactus, or a slabbed vase. They are suitable for both beginners and more experienced potters. As well as making your pot or vase, you will also decorate it using paper resist, wax resist or sgraffito (carving a pattern) using coloured slips. Lara’s expertise in surface decoration comes to the fore, as you will be guided step-by step through these processes. These half-day workshops are open to adults only (16+), and are a great activity to share with a friend.

These workshops are led by Lara, who is also a professional textile designer and printer.

Your unique and very special pieces will be ready to collect, after two firings and glazing, a few weeks later.

The cost includes teaching, materials, glazing, firing and refreshments.

"Geoff and I attended our first class this morning with Lara and we both had a thoroughly enjoyable time! She’s a lovely person and a great teacher - at once instructive, encouraging and full of good suggestions."

These workshops provide a great opportunity for a “Taster Session” if you are contemplating joining a class. There is nothing like a full hands-on experience, working within a group of like-minded people, and getting a good feel for the facilities, energy and atmosphere of the studio.
