28 July @ 19:00 - 21:00
Join Megan Elliott (she/her), founder of Clay Wild, for a relaxing queer pottery workshop at The Queery! The class will be focusing on traditional hand-building techniques using minimal tools and is suitable for all levels.
Date: Thursday 28th July 2022, 7-9pm
Location: The Queery, 46-47 George St, BN2 1RJ, Brighton, UK.
Price: £30 (you will take home 1-2 new clay creations!); each class, 20% of the spots are discounted by 50% for people with low income. Please only reserve one of these spots if you feel this applies to you. No proof required. If the spots are sold out and you would like to attend but are unable to afford a ticket, please contact me directly. There is an option to add a pay it forward donation to contribute towards the cost of these spots and to enable me to offer more low income spots in the future.
About the class:
Participants will learn how to make a pinch pot and a coil pot out of air-drying clay and will be guided through how to personalise their new creations.
At the end of the class, participants should have two small finished pots to take away with them and tips on how to decorate these at home when dry. These pots are perfect as little storage vessels or ornaments and can also be used for succulents/small plants.
No experience necessary – suitable for all levels! This is a class prioritising queer joy and creativity in a safe, sober space.
Your clay will still be delicate upon completion, so please bring a little box or container to carry your creations home. A tub or a small box (approx shoe box size) is ideal, but there will also be newspaper for you to wrap them in if needed.
