Milland Pottery Hampshire - Pottery Workshops

Messy fun for all the family (6 years upwards)
BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL
Our pottery classes are run for groups or individually of any age.

The classes are kept small, 8 is an ideal number.
Old clothes are advisable but t-shirts, which can act as cover-alls, are available.
Warm clothes in the winter months are a necessity.

Team building sessions are also available. Get to know your colleagues as they make a pot on the wheel or have fun hand building with clay. Our setting allows for a relaxed visit, take a walk along the local footpaths, share a hot drink, enjoy the peaceful countryside. Once the pots are fired they can take pride of place in the office!!


Potter's Wheel

Angela will demonstrate how to make pots on the potter's wheeland then talk you through the process. The pottery has three wheels, two electric and a kick wheel.

Throwing a pot on the wheel needs a fair amount of strength, it is therefore suggested that children are over 12 years old. Making pots on the wheel involves various stages. The pot needs to dry between each stage. The first lesson is spent mastering centring the clay and forming the clay into a pot. If a second session is possible, the semi dried pot is turned upside down and excess clay is cut away. A handle and decoration can then be applied as required. (If only one session is applicable, the pots can be finished off for you. There is a small charge for this.)

The emphasis is on having fun, getting mucky and not to have to worry about it.


Hand Building

Budding potters can choose what they make while being guided to discover the different pottery techniques. Clay can be rolled out flat and then laid in a mould ready to decorate; or the flat clay can be decorated as a sign or tile with raised lettering or decoration.

The rolled clay can also be made into a vase or mug. Pinch pots turn into all manner of creatures, faces etc., or there is the coil pot technique. There is usually time to put some colour decoration on the creations.Once the pots are dry they are fired and glazed. They are ready to collect in about 4-6 weeks.
