Tea Party Making Course

Description

Join us for this 4-day pottery course where you will be introduced to the techniques of throwing pots and making handles.


In a small group you get to take some time out to explore this ancient and meditative craft. Time on the wheel is a great way to escape everyday worries, and we hope you enjoy the process as much as we enjoy teaching it.


During this 4-day workshop, Sundays 10-4pm, you will work on a potting wheel to shape clay, and learn some key throwing techniques, guided by one of our expert teachers. The aim will be to make 1 Teapot with 4 mugs.


The course aims to bring aspiring potters, including total beginners and improvers who have had a basic introduction to pottery making on the wheel, through the process of designing and making a ceramic teapot.

Please note you will be working on a potters' wheel in a bent position which might put a strain on your neck and back. Throwing on a potter's wheel can put a strain on your wrists, too. Please consult your doctor if you’ve had back, neck, wrist or any other injuries

To reach the classroom you will have to use stairs and there is no lift in the building.

Wear comfortable clothes that you do not mind getting messy. Please bring your own apron. Keep your hair tied up and your nails short. 

What's the day like?

You will be welcomed by your teacher and brought to our top floor classroom (no lifts available). Each participant will have access to their own potters' wheel / workstation and tools / for the duration of the workshop. Workshop ends with class and equipment clean up - another important part of potter's training! 

Is lunch provided?

No, lunch is not provided. 

When will my pots be available for collection?

You will pick 2 teapots at the end of the course that we will fire and glaze for you. They will be ready for collection from our studio within a few weeks after the class. We will email you when they are ready for collection.

Please note: once the teapots are inside the kiln we cannot be held responsible for any damages that happen to them (cracks, explosions, breakages). This unfortunately, is out of our hands and is part of the many difficulties of working with clay.

This course is for people aged 16 and above.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The nearest Luas Red Line stop is 'Four Courts', and many bus routes service Stop 1479 on Ormond Quay, at the junction with Capel Street. You'll also find a Dublin Bikes stand at each of these locations.
