Pottery & Gardening!

November brought our series of Pottery Workshop’s held at Space Studios in Hackney working with The Potting Shed. We haven’t worked with clay for a while in our workshops so it was fantastic to use this creative medium again in our sessions. Did you know ceramics are a favourite of our founder Marice Cumber, check out her amazing work here

The brief was to design and create our own pinch pot style plant holder that would then be glazed and fired and then planted up with a lovely succulent. Tutor Liz Jackson guided our group though all the stages from how to use slips and carving tools to decorate their creations to firing and glazing.

Look at the concentration on these faces! The group just loved working on this project. Pottery and gardening! Such a enjoyable and relaxing way to switch off from everything and get creative.

When they were finished, each member of the group had a beautiful and unique piece they had made to enjoy!
