Throw and decorate your own mug with a funky handle, in this workshop lead by our head potter, Mathew Dimbleby. This class is perfect for those who have completed our beginner's course or have had previous experience throwing on the wheel. In this three hour workshop you will learn how to throw different shapes of mug bodies and how to pull, or roll handles which can then be formed into unique shapes and then attached to the mug body. Making mugs is all about timing, ensuring that both the mug body and handle are of similar moisture content prior to joining the handle to the mug body. Once you have achieved the correct shape and are happy with what you have produced, it will be time to get the paint brushes out to decorate your mug with underglaze colour. This is your final step in getting creative. Post lesson the mug/s will be dried out in our studio before going through a double firing process. The first firing process is the biscuit firing to 1000oc before being glazed with a food safe, lead-free glaze and fired again to 1120oc. Your mug/s will be ready to collect in approximately 2-3 weeks after your lesson. This class runs twice a month on a Tuesday afternoon 1pm to 4pm or Thursday morning 10am to 1pm. However, if you are interested in this class and can't make it on the dates available, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or ring us on 07900582268 and we will try our best to accommodate you.
