Part Time Pottery Classes
Jennie runs these weekly classes in 2 ten week terms each year. Starting January and September
Jennie's classes have been running for 19 years, with just 8 students at a time in a modern studio. Students get a concentrated experience of practical pottery and superior teaching. Jennie teaches both hand-building and throwing using our now famous Donyatt clay body. At the end of each 10 week term there is a wood-firing or two, for which students have glazed and decorated their work. Some students also get involved with kiln packing and firing.
Wood-firing is a special way of working and though used by many more potters now than say 20 years ago, it is still unusual as the main stay of finishing work in a teaching situation. Wood firing has been the speciality of Ridge Pottery from its start in Queen Camel in 1977.
