This is an exciting opportunity to make your own stoneware cups! You will construct your cups from a hand-rolled slab of clay, using a template enabling multiples of the same size. You will be shown how to wrap the clay round a form, and finish by joining with slip and attaching a handle! Ideas of surface texture and pattern will be demonstrated as well as application of coloured slips. There will be plenty of time to explore and develop your own ideas. The workshop will begin with a coffee and chat with Jenny. All techniques will be demonstrated, and you will be encouraged to experiment with your design in a relaxed atmosphere, enjoying the views from Jenny's workshop in rural Sussex. Your work will be glazed and fired and be ready for you to collect around two weeks after the workshop. No experience necessary. Drinks and biscuits will be provided during the day, please bring your own packed lunch.

About your Mentor

About your Mentor


My background includes textiles, Art Foundation and a BA Hons in Creative Practice 3D Design. I have wide experience in teaching creative courses to adults. I have a fascination with clay, its versatility intrigues me, and I enjoy encouraging others to explore and develop their own ideas in this wonderful medium. My practice starts with an idea that I mull over for a while and can involve more than one process. My work is process-led and ideas develop as I manipulate in stoneware clay. Experimentation is an important part of my work and it is sometimes necessary to revisit an old technique as a starting point. People are never disappointed in this one-day workshop because everyone can make progress and enjoy the process of creating with versatility.
