Professional potter Bill Moore is setting up a studio in the Walled Garden.
Bill produces a range of contemporary porcelain and stoneware pottery, all hand thrown and glazed in his distinctive manganese gold glaze.
Bill is offering a range of clay and pottery activities:
· Parties for children and adults.
· Evening courses for beginners and improvers.
· Family sessions
· Children's pottery course - Saturday mornings.
· One to one tuition including provision for students to work on GCSE assignments.
· Educational workshops
· Baby, toddler and family hand and feet impressions
The evening course is for beginners and improvers and runs for 10 weeks starting 21 September 6.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m. All tuition is by Bill Moore. Material costs are included in the course fee which is £120 per person.
The pottery parties - a unique way of celebrating special occasions. (Birthdays, Hen Parties or Company dos) - last approximately two and a half hours starting with a demonstration by Bill on the potter's wheel.
Everyone has a go on the wheel and is guaranteed to make a lovely pot and a clay tile and have great fun sculpting a gargoyle or face out of clay. To finish the party we'll make an animal, making four masterpieces each!
At the family pottery session enjoy making six pots on the potter's wheel in a one- hour session. With expert tuition from Bill, create your own art to last a lifetime, with your name and date marked underneath. All the pots for the family sessions and pottery parties can be collected approximately three weeks after being glazed and fired.
A children's Saturday morning pottery course similar to the evening course described above will start in September, 10.30am to 12.30 pm. It's a 5 week course with a maximum of 8 children. The cost will be £60 per child. Bill Moore also runs educational workshops in schools. He has experience of teaching in a number of educational establishments, from Years 2 to 14.
Bill looks forward to you dropping in to see his new established pottery workshop at 'The Walled Garden' Wrington. Opening times Tuesday - Sunday 11 am - 4.30 pm.
