Perfect your pottery at this new workshop

Posted on Updated on

We had a blast trying to throw pots last term. The laughter coming from the room of pottery wheels was testament to this (see this blog post for evidence).

Anyone who missed it, or who wants a refresher of the basics, can now get their chance.

Angus is teaching a new weekly pottery workshop on behalf of the Cairngorms Learning Partnership next month. He’ll be covering the basic skills, including using the wheel, handsculpting and glazing.

The class will run at Grantown Grammar School every Thursday night (from 6-8pm), starting from May 11, for five weeks. The cost is £65.

More information on the course and how to book is available here on the CLP’s website.



March 8: More clay

Posted on Updated on

A chance to continue the clay work started at the previous class.

Angus showed us an example last week that we might try to emulate. He had cut tree shapes out of the sides of his dried pot. With a tealight inside, this would create lovely shadowy effect.

Time to get your thinking caps on?!
