Throwing

The potter's wheel. In a process called "throwing" (coming from the Old English word thrawan which means to twist or turn,) a ball of clay is placed in the centre of a turntable, called the wheel-head, which the potter rotates with a stick, with foot power or with a variable-speed electric motor.

Coil Technique

Coiling is a method of creating pottery. It has been used to shape clay into vessels for many thousands of years. ... There are many ways to build ceramic objects using the coiling technique.

Pinch Clay

A pinch pot is a simple form of hand-made pottery produced from ancient times to the present. The pinching method is to create pottery that can be ornamental or functional, and has been widely employed across cultures and times.

Glazing

We are working with top studios across London to provide stunning glazes both modern and classical.

 

 

Teachers

Our teachers are selected from the finest studios in the country on their experience as both tutor and commercial success in the industry.

Monday classes will be under the supervision and tutorial of Gregory Tingay (b 1964).

'Some pots are made quickly. They speak of a moment, of catching a fugitive idea of clay, glaze and fire, and moving on. Others like the beautiful vessels by Gregory, record a different kind of time. He works with quality of paying attention to the volume and articulation of edge, the way in which the lip of a bowl or jar holds tile change of mood between interior and exterior. They are considered. That is they come from someone who has understood the practice of everyday life, tile passage of days, and knows that to spend hours, or days, or weeks on the discovery of a pattern, the flow of lines into an efflorescence, is a beautiful thing. It is always difficult to make such painstaking work, speak with delight and pleasure.' 

Edmund de Waal is one of the world’s leading ceramic artists and his porcelain is held in many major international collections. His bestselling memoir The Hare with the Amber Eyes won the Costa Biography Award and the Costa Biography Award and the RSL Ondaatje Prize.

Gregory learnt his trade whilst in the monastery, he is both patient, engaging and amusing.
