The Clay Studio announces more Painting Academy dates

19 February 2007

Following the success of the first series of Painting Academy workshops, The Clay Studio is pleased to announce a further set of dates for March to May 2007. 

Module 1 "Introduction to Pottery Painting" will run during both evenings and daytimes so aspiring painters can choose the time that best suits them. Each session during the six-week course teaches a specific painting technique with the finished piece available for collection the following week. The courses start on Thursday 22 March 2007 at 7pm and on Wednesday 28 March 2007 at 10am, each session lasting for about two hours.  

Module 2 “Improvers” will run on Tuesday evenings from 13 March 2007 at 7pm. This will teach more advanced techniques and will be ideal for anyone who has completed module 1 or has some pottery painting experience.

Painting Academy workshops teach a wide range of pottery painting techniques so that anyone can produce high quality painted pottery. No previous experience is necessary for Module 1 although a level of familiarity is recommended for Module 2. Each session lasts around two hours with the piece glazed and fired at The Clay Studio for collection the following week.

Places on Painting Academy courses are limited so advance booking is recommended. Each course costs £45 with a choice of unpainted pottery (bisque) pieces each week available at 25% discount on the usual price.

The Clay Studio is a contemporary pottery painting studio, offering visitors the opportunity to paint their own pottery and learn different painting and decorative effects through the Painting Academy and by having trained staff always on-hand. Alongside the painting is The Clay Studio Café which offers snacks and beverages, sourced, wherever possible, from local Dorset and Hampshire producers.
