PLEASE BRING WITH YOU
• IMPORTANT. Please bring with you good images of the animal design you are going to create; especially if it is a pet. Take a series of photographs at eye level from the front, back and sides and the top and some detailed shots of the head. For any other animal please print out as many images of your chosen animal from sources like google images. Please note, we do have a good library of animal books, but your one many not be featured. It takes a lot of time out of our teaching schedule if we have to print lots of images from the computer. We do have a wifi connection, so you are welcome to use mobile phones, laptop and ipads. However please be aware that clay is wet and dusty and could cause damage to your equipment and we take no responsibility if this occurs.
• Sketch book
• Camera
• Overall, but we have lots of spare ones if you forget.
• Lunch if staying for double classes or the full day of the sculpture workshop.

COMPLETION AND WHAT IS EXTRA
At the end of the session, once your piece is completed, it will need to dry out for about 2 – 3 weeks before going in to a bisque firing. Then the work will need to be glaze fired. Basic glaze work such as an artistic oxide finish, that can be seen in the images below as a brown stain, are included in the price as are simple colour stoneware finishes. There is an extra charge for complicated glaze work that you would like us to do for you - Small £5.00, Gargoyle £10.00 and large £25.00. Or you are welcome to either save your piece to work on if you are intending to join the group classes, or you can book a private class. We shall arrange a date for a group option several weeks after the workshops if there is a demand. See below for price guide.

Once your work is finished we will contact you to arrange collection, which usually takes about 4 – 8 weeks.

For any other questions you may have, please refer to the FAQ link at the bottom of the page.
