Build a Greek Vase in One Day (Nov)

Annie Lyle

Greek pottery styles emerged around 700 BC, the vases that were made were mostly functional but also made to be admired and even considered worthy gifts for the gods.

During this one day course, you will learn how to make a Greek vase from the beginning to end. You will be introduced to hand-building techniques and we will use them to create the structure and form. The tutor will share the knowledge she has gained from studying ceramics and from her artist residency in the centre of Rome.

We will use high quality clay and the finished pieces will be fired here at Phoenix Art Space.

The course is suitable for all levels including beginners, no experience necessary.

All tools and materials will be provided but please bring the following: an apron or clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, your own tools if you have them. You are welcome to bring your own own moulds and glazes, but please discuss this with the tutor first. Please note: your work will be fired after the course finishes and will be available for you to come and collect at a later date.

Annie Lyle: I’m an artist specialising in ceramics with eight years experience in the industry. I’ve been teaching for three years in workshop and class environments. I make artwork everyday and I’m dedicated to share the joy I feel making it. I truly believe that everyone is an artist with their own unique gifts. Although, not everyone has had the advantage of being shown or told how to explore the creativity within themselves. This is what has led me to where I am now. I strive to help people express themselves creatively, to give positive feedback and to show people that we really are creative in our own unique ways.
