Pottery workshops & exhibition

We are delighted to welcome the wonderful ceramicist Jo Davies to The Stables.

For those keen to make their own gifts in the lead up to Christmas, or interested in learning a new craft, we will be running a series of exclusive ceramic workshops. These will provide a wonderful opportunity for participants of all abilities to get creative under the guidance of Jo.

In addition to this, there will be a exhibition of Jo’s ceramics & a pop up shop in our studio space. A perfect opportunity to pick up those one off Christmas gifts.

Spaces for both group & one to one workshops are limited. We strongly advise booking early to avoid disappointment.

As a Royal College of Art graduate, and experienced studio-ceramics practitioner, Jo Davies has become a respected Designer-Maker. Her work is bought by collectors from around the world who value her ceramics for its quality and beauty. She is an award-winning practitioner who has taught at university level and exhibits internationally.

Jo specialises in wheel-thrown and hand-built porcelain, bringing years of experience and craftsmanship to every object made. She makes everything at her workshop in Dalston, East London.

We are excited to welcome her to The Stables.

Time : 10:30am – 12:30pm

Price : £35.00 pp. This includes tuition, materials, kiln firing & a glass of mulled wine.

Description : Learn about working with porcelain through this simple but effective workshop. Using found-objects to make impressions in porcelain-clay, and then constructing into small vessels, these tealights will, once kiln-fired, glow with the translucency of porcelain.

Description : Have you always wanted to have a go on the potter’s wheel? This is your chance to try it out. This highly respected craft, dating back thousands of years, is trickier than it looks but great fun to try. These half-hour long sessions will give you an idea of the process and let you get your hands on some clay to make a fledgling pot of your own.
