Join POTS N PINTS’ Anna for an intimate evening of pottery loveliness at Tom Browns Pub in Dorchester. We’ll be taking things nice and slow, with step-by-step tutorials of how to make your own stoneware mugs! You’ll have enough clay to make a collection of objects: perhaps 3 coffee mugs or 2 supersize mugs, perfect for boozy hot chocolates. If a set of mugs aren’t really your jam – you can opt for a vase, candle sticks, egg cups, shot glasses, soap dishes, candle sticks, tapas dishes, jewellery bowls or even a TEAPOT if you‘re feeling ambitious! Anna is on hand to help and inspire, and after the initial tuturial will be at your beckoning call for any ideas you may want to throw her way.
We’ll be using a delicious stoneware clay that is warm in colour, with a slight freckle. As standard, we’ll be glazing your mugs with a glossy transparent glaze, this will make them water tight and food safe – ready for a lifetime of use and love! For an extra £5 you can opt for a gorgeous milky, satin matte glaze – developed by Anna.
OR… If you’d like to add some colour to your mugs, there will be an oppotunity to paint them At a later session (TBC) We’ll have high quality ceramic paints ready for you to use, in a rainbow of colours – these are put onto the mugs before the glaze, so theirs no chance of them rubbing off or fading over time.
Anna is potty about pottery, and has a good few years of experience under her belt, so will be more than equipped to help fulfil whatever goals you may have. Prior to returning to Weymouth she studied Ceramics at university and worked for the legendary Brickett Davda – producing high end ceramics & tableware, where she learnt lots of tips and tricks to making pottery that is loveable + perfectly functional.
If you have any ideas that you’d like to share before the session, please drop us an email on Anna.firstname.lastname@example.org or message on Instagram or facebook
