The Next Step


Over the past couple of year’s at Pinecroft Centre for the Arts we have offered one day classes as an introduction to making functional pottery. We take a group of 8 and teach centering, and the making of a cylinder, a bowl and usually a what have ya. The courses have been a runaway success. Usually friends, nurses from the hospital, mums and daughters, teachers, the gang from the hairdressers come for a day of getting dirty and a nice lunch at the Green Frog Tearoom.
What this usually means is that we trim their pots, handle them, glaze and fire them.
There have been many students that have asked what’s next??? We are introducing The Next Step. This is the fun part of making potss- making marks, applying a wide variety of surfaces decoration and making them yours.
