Service Description

Indulge in a creative and relaxing weekend with Scarab Pots, at The Chocolate Quarter in Keynsham, with our first ever Pottery Weekend. There are 3 options for this weekend: handbuilding, wheel throwing, or sculpting. This booking is for the SCULPTING option. The sculpting / modelling course is with Chloe Chauwin, in our welcoming, fully accessible studio. Our weekend project is to sculpt a stylised / simple model of your family / pets / friend. It is difficult to predict how many figures you would be able to make over the weekend, as it will depend on work speed! You should be able to make 2 or 3 people or a couple and a pet. To be discussed! You'll learn how to: - prepare the clay - create a simple body shape - model the face and hair - decorate the figures with colourerd slips and carve / scgraffito pattern or details into them This is a lovely activity to do with a family member or friend - perhaps even someone visiting for the weekend. It's also a nice way to meet new people in a safe and friendly environment. The sessions will run 9.30am until 5.30pm on both Saturday 21st Sept. and 22nd Sept. There will be an hour's break for lunch. You will make and decorate your figures over the weekend. Your pieces will then be left to dry out, be bisque fired, then glazed and fired again. You'll be able to pick up your finished set from the studio a few weeks later. If you think handbuilding or wheel throwing might be more your cup of tea, they will be happening in the same studio this weekend, so check out the other bookings! If you're coming with someone, you don't have to choose the same option.
