Pottery Week End Texture & Colour In Natural Objects
Due to the success of Andy Warren's Pottery Workshop in April we are delighted to offer another week end in 2018.

Andy has been making pots for over 40 years and is an experienced teacher. He will be giving a hands-on 2 day workshop suitable for all abilities. Over the 2 days you will have the opportunity to examine, discuss, study and practice various methods of forming shapes and build onto them to give a sculptural feel to your work. You will also use slips on leather hard pieces that will be fired and ready for collection 2 weeks' later. Cost for the two-day course is 110. Delicous healthy food is available. Limited accommodation is available to book at the centre. ( book early to avoid disappointment!) Contact info@midwalesarts.org.uk or ring 01686 688369.

One previous participant of the same course in said:

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and superb lunch over the weekend. I loved Andy's Pottery Workshop and the lovely setting. We will certainly be visiting you again.
