Teapot workshop with Suzy Dunser

A treat for our wheel throwers!

Are you keen to learn the fundamentals of teapot creation? During this 2-day workshop, you will learn how to understand the different components of a teapot, how to optimise their function, and how the teapot components interact with each other visually. You will have the opportunity to make and assemble two different thrown teapots, exploring different bodies, lids, handles and spouts.

Intermediate level workshop for those confident centering 1kg of clay and  throwing a cylinder that is taller than it is wide. Find out more...

Phoenix woodfiring with Ginny Lane

5-7 May

After missing out on firing the Phoenix last year after an injury, Ginny is back!

WSP members are invited to book a spot on the upcoming club woodfiring. New comers and experienced wood firers are welcome. If it's your first time, be sure to read the information on the event page as there are a few things to be aware of in choosing clay and glazes, volume requirements and time commitments. If you have any questions, please get in touch to ask. Wood firings are also a great bonding weekend experience and you will almost certainly make some friends. Places are limited.
