Turning & Finishing Pots on the Wheel

Featured Image


Tuesday 27th August

In this skills focused workshop you will use pre-prepared leather hard pots to develop and improve your turning skills, making handles as well as finishing your pots to a high standard. We will provide leather hard thrown pots in a buff clay that you will practice with, how to centre your pots, which tools to use and how to finish your pots professionally.

These pots will not be kept so you don’t become attached to them and can focus fully on learning new skills.

Gillian is a Belfast based potter who is originally from Galway and takes lots of her inspiration from her west coast home place. Gillian fell in love with pottery when she was knee high, and after school, Gillian followed another career path and dipped in and out with her pottery hobby as and when she could but her underlying longing to work with clay as more than a hobbyist remained strong. In 2019 she took the first steps to her pottery career and worked part time as a classroom assistant while setting up in her garden shed, in 2023 she became a full time potter.
