The workshop in detail

  • 3h30
  • 2 to 5 participants
  • 15 years min.
  • Join Ellie for a fun and creative pottery workshop where you'll learn the art of hand-building and create your own butter dish and egg tray!

    Start your day with an introduction to Ellie and her studio. 

    Then you'll learn the basics of throwing and moulding. Ellie will guide you through rolling the clay and allowing it to dry slightly. Using her stencils, you'll have the chance to edit and create your own unique design for a butter dish.

    Next, you'll roll out the clay for your second piece, the egg tray. Again, you'll be using Ellie's templates and modifying them to suit your style. Once the clay is dry enough, you'll go back to your first piece and start assembling your butter dish. Ellie will show you how to join your creation together seamlessly.

    Once assembled, it's time to get creative with the design. You can add your own personal touch with engraving and other decorative techniques. Finally, you'll have a choice of three glazes for your pieces, which Ellie will fire for you.

    Your handmade creations will be ready for collection or despatch within four weeks, allowing time for proper firing and finishing. Throughout the workshop you will enjoy complimentary tea and coffee, with breaks to chat with Ellie and your fellow students.

    Ellie's workshops are a great opportunity to unleash your creativity, learn new skills and walk away with beautiful ceramic pieces. Whether you're a beginner or have some experience, Ellie's engaging and supportive tuition will ensure a rewarding and enjoyable experience!

    Wecandoo - Meet Ellie

    Meet Ellie

    Ceramist

    Meet Ellie, a dynamic artisan who has made a name for herself in the world of ceramics. Ellie completed her BA in Product and Furniture Design at Kingston School of Art, graduating with a first class honours degree in 2021. During her studies, she spent an Erasmus year on the Danish island of Bornholm, a pivotal experience that completely changed her focus to ceramics.

    On Bornholm, Ellie honed her craft as an apprentice at Hjorths Fabrik, a traditional ceramics workshop. Here she mastered production pottery on a kick wheel, immersing herself in the rich heritage and techniques of Danish ceramics.

    Today, Ellie divides her time between lecturing part-time in 3D Design on the Foundation Course at Kingston School of Art and running her own engaging workshops in her studio. These workshops are a fantastic opportunity for people to unleash their creativity and explore the art of ceramics under Ellie's expert guidance.

    Join one of Ellie's workshops and discover the joy of creating your own ceramic pieces!
