Ceramics Class with Tash Fry klā: Sculpting with Water

Discover the power of water as you learn to coil your own traditional water vessel and relax into the natural sound baths of the River Itchen. Monday 18 July 6.00pm - 8.00pm Monday 12 September 6.00pm -8.00pm

  • Booking essential

Allow local ceramicist Tash to introduce you into the art of hand-building ceramics as she teaches you how to coil your very own traditional water vessel.

Tash will teach you the ancient coil technique that was typically used in Ancient Greek pottery. You will learn how to use this method to build up your pieces to sculpt large-scale vessels.

Discover the power of water and its deep historical intertwining with clay. Learn about the ancient history of Ancient Greek water vessels, their uses, significance & their symbolism.

Experience a meditative natural sound bath beside the River Itchen to end the workshop, exploring the movement of water from vessel to river in a gentle ‘water ceremony’ to leave you feeling calm and serene.

Anyone and everyone is welcome! No previous experience of working with clay is required.

Your functional ceramic water vessel will be glazed and fired for you after our session. Please allow up to 6 weeks for this process.
