Children’s classes run once a month on a Saturday morning, 9 – 10.30am for younger ones (year 1 – 4 approx.) and 11 – 12.30pm for slightly older (Year 5 – year 9 approx.) Prices start from £17 per child. This cost covers all materials and firing. There is a booking system on a first come first served basis, though you are able to book for all sessions for that term if you choose, this is usually 4 sessions. We cover all studio hand building techniques and there is often a seasonal or subject theme, though children are helped with their own ideas if they prefer. We are not usually able to offer working on the potters wheel in these sessions, this is offered for children in the private booking parties.
Silver Street Studios run 4 adult classes per week. There are regular classes, once a week, Monday afternoons, Wednesday mornings, Tuesday and Thursday evenings, which last for 2 – 3 hours (daytime classes are longer) prices start from £25 per session. After an initial ‘try out’ session, we ask people to commit a half term, 6 weeks. The cost covers all materials and firings. We cover all the basic studio hand building and decorative techniques as well as one-to-one tuition on the potters’ wheel.
One off workshops/ specialist workshops
Silver Street Studios run workshops on a one off basis. These are designed with a particular group in mind, a seasonal subject matter or in discussion with a client. We can either run the workshop at the studio or take it to another venue, school, community centre, business premises or another home. The cost of these specialist workshops are dependent on the products made and number of people. Please enquire for a price.
