Fermentation Crocks - Tony Joslin




About the Class

This is a rare chance to advance your throwing skills over an intensive weekend with veteran potter Tony Joslin. The course is for students who would like to try new shapes under expert guidance. Learning will be through demonstration of the techniques and then there will be a chance for you to try them for yourself. There will also be guidance on making larger forms. Each course is focused on an advanced shape with time for individual attention. 

This course is aimed at the intermediate to the advanced level student and it is recommended that you can centre the clay. Skills taught include making large forms, galleys, lids with knobs and ceramic weights. Students will learn to make a fermentation pot. Each will leave with Tony's sauerkraut recipe! 

The cost of your materials and tools are included in the course price and you will be able to choose your best 4 pots to bisque fire. You have the option of firing more pots for £10 per extra piece. Your bisque (once-fired) pots will be ready to collect about 10 days after your course. We can glaze them for you in our studio-speckled white glaze for you or you can book into one of our glazing classes here, allowing at least 10 days from your course for the first firing.

All classes are for adults only and a maximum of 8 people. 


Saturday and Sunday, 10 am-4 pm.
