Practical Pinch Pots (starts 13/01/21)

Pinch pot being made

Start date:

13 January 2021

Start time:


In this 4 week introduction to clay you will learn the pinching method to create a functional practical pot. This ancient technique of making simple pots is a great way of getting familiar with the properties of clay which you will be able to form into a bowl, dish or vessel before decorating with a colourful glaze.

Pottery Studio

The studio is well equipped with materials, tools and equipment and you should not need to bring any tools or materials with you. We do recommend bringing and using a small notebook to keep a record of your work and ideas. You are welcome to bring your own tools but you will not be able to keep them at Hive.

The ceramics studio has a small reference library which you can consult for inspiration and information about ceramics and ceramic decoration. We encourage students to look at a variety of sources for inspiration and information including magazines and periodicals, as well as online sources such as Pinterest and YouTube.

You will be expected to follow Health and Safety guidance whenever you use Hive’s ceramics studio.

A short multimedia craft course where you will be helped to create ceramic beads or pendants along with customised braided, knotted or woven cords to display or wear them on.
