JAPANESE POTTERS : the next generation – 2 DAY WORKSHOP: 26-28 June 2015

blog_kigbeare-gallery-01

Six young Japanese potters, who have all  served long apprenticeships with Masters, and are now making a name for themselves in their own right, are teaching a weekend workshop at Kigbeare. I am told these potters are VERY GOOD – A few spaces left, Call Maddy NOW!

 Everyone will have an opportuntity to learn new skills and practice using traditional Japanese tools.
Using a range of techniques, both ancient and contemporary, this is going to be an intense but fun workshop, with six energetic teachers all keen to impart their take on Japanese culture.
The workshop starts on Friday evening, with a Private View Exhibition  to which all workshop attendees are welcome, and a Japanese Night on the Saturday evening, finishing on Sunday afternoon.
Days can be booked individually.
PROGRAMME:  There will be three disciplines taught during the workshop:  Electric wheel, Band Wheel and Handbuilding and Natural Group.
Electric Wheel Group:  will learn the twist and other shape alterning techniques
Band Wheel Group:  handbulding
Natural Group:  using found objects from Nature to make plates
You can choose which group you wish to join, but everyone is encouraged to rotate through each workshop, to benefit from all the expertise on site.
The cost of the workshop is £80 per day, which includes light refreshments throughout the day, lunch, the use of all tools and unlimited supplies of clay to practice with.
 
Camping is availabe on site, and  a list of local B&B’s is available on request.
