Course Details

The workshop will be taught jointly with John Scott (Sourdust Pottery) in Stocksfield (near Newcastle), Northumberland.

Participants - The workshop is most suitable for participants with at least a basic experience of working with clay who want to know more about these 'alternative' techniques. The workshop is not primarily aimed at producing finished work but intended to give participants experience of different methods of achieving surface markings which they can then employ in their own work.

Payment can be made by cheque (payable to John Evans), by major debit and credit cards (Credit Cards + 2%), or by PayPal (+3%). If registering from outside the UK payment is to be made by PayPal. 
Should the workshop fail to attract sufficient numbers, it may be cancelled and all monies paid will be returned. There will be no further liability on the part of the organisers. 
Should you need to cancel before 1st Jun 2013, all payments, less an administrative charge of 35 will be returned. No refunds can be made after that date unless your place can be filled by somebody else.
Organisation - John Evans and John Scott will be jointly leading the workshop. Evans' work using alternative raku techniques is widely known and exhibited in the UK. Articles about his techniques have featured in 'Ceramic Review' and in international publications. His alternative raku workshops in the South of England (and recently also in Portugal) have become a popular event with many participants returning a second time. 

John Scott is the proprietor of the Sourdust Pottery. His current work focuses on naked raku and sculptural ceramics. It is supplied to a range of quality galleries and is regularly exhibited at trade and ceramic shows nationwide, including the prestigious 'Potfest in the Park' event. He is an experienced teacher and regularly holds classes for groups of all ages and abilities.
