Sara offers the opportunity to learn about working with clay in the relaxed environment of her studio, found tucked away at the end of a long treelined laneway, immediately generating that 'getting away from it all’ feeling.
Courses typically run over two days and are limited to 4 or 5 participants. We start at 10.30am and finish up about 4pm. As a beginner you will learn some techniques and design a number of your own pieces during the first session. If you are more experienced I will help you to work with your own ideas.
Your work will be dried and fired over the following week, ready to be glazed in the second one-day session, after which the glaze firing will take place and pieces will be ready for collection a few days later. I can arrange mounting/framing and delivery if required.
Price of €120 per day includes all materials, morning coffee, delicious home-cooked lunch and afternoon tea. A stroll up the hill after lunch is recommended to help digest and take in the fresh air while being inspired by the spectacular coastal views from the surrounding cliffs.
If you choose not to partake in the glazing workshop I can glaze your work for you. Glazing, framing or delivery as required will incur an additional cost.
Small groups can also book special courses tailored and scheduled to suit their needs.
Relax in the comfort of a nearby home stay if you would like to overnight in the area before or after the workshop.
