Private sessions with professional ceramic practitioners for 1-3 participants.

​With unfettered access to our teachers' extensive knowledge as ceramic practitioners, you will gain an in-depth experience and greatly improve your ceramic practice. Whether you come brimming with ideas or have no clue where to start, these sessions will be customised to where you are at and where you want to go. Here are some of the things you may wish to learn:

  • Introduction to different clay bodies, firing temperatures, and their uses (i.e. Stoneware, earthenware, porcelain and paper clay as a solution for sculptural work)

  • Handbuilding techniques: slab building, coil, pinch, etc.

  • Centering and throwing on the pottery wheel.

  • Turning and trimming on the pottery wheel.

  • Surface texture: carving, stamping, fabric pressing, etc.

  • Surface decoration: glazing, terra sigillata, slip, sgraffito, etc.

  • Firing processes: electric kiln, gas, raku, wood fire.

  • Photographing your work using our in house product photography setup 

As a CIC and Social Enterprise, it is our intention is to make Dalston Clay a studio that is available to everyone, regardless of financial circumstance. While we need to function as a business, we never want money to be the reason why someone can't benefit from what we've built. If you truly can't afford the full cost of our offerings, we invite you to contact us to discuss your situation and we will endeavour to sort something out.
