Gary Wood runs clay workshops from his studio in Bath for people of all ages and abilities. He has a particular interest in working with people with special needs. Gary has taught ceramics in many different settings over the last ten years.
He can do one to one tuition, one and two day taster workshops, group classes and team building sessions for companies, schoolteachers and other professionals, using clay as a medium for creative expression and confidence building.
He also does pottery birthday parties and hen parties.
Clay holds great potential for learning. It is a friendly, tactile material, which elicits visual and verbal expression through touch. It has a calming, meditative effect on the nervous system. Clay artefacts produced by children or adults will provoke stimulating, imaginative conversation and laughter during the making process. The alchemy of making something permanent through firing is an enriching experience that will stir the imagination to do and say more.
The studio will be available from September 2017 for the following:
Half day taster clay workshops: learn a number of different making and decorating techniques.
Monday 11th September. 10am – 1pm or 2pm – 5pm. £75
