The aim of the workshop is to give guests an introduction to working with clay and the different methods used to create forms. This information will provide them with useful basic knowledge if they plan to go on to take part in more advanced courses.

10:30 - 11:00

The guests will plan a small project to create their own pot or sculpture using the knowledge and information provided during the morning.

11:30 - 13:30
The guests will start making their work - supported and assisted by the workshop leader. All tools and materials are provided.

13:30 - 14:15

I am a creative artist who makes hand built and thrown ceramics. These have been exhibited across Scotland and are now in collections in London, Canada and The United States. I like making pieces which are individual and inspired by the beautiful Moray coast. I also work as a part time art therapist and teacher and I will use these skills to create a memorable and fun experience for my guests. I have a small studio with a wheel and kiln which can accommodate up to two people.

In my 14 year-old's own words: 'A very nice and welcoming atmosphere, Jenny was so friendly and knowledgeable, I learnt the basics of pottery and was able to finish my own creation. It was a wonderful experience to have, felt like a therapeutic activity as I worked along another guest and forgot about the time : ). Can't wait for Jenny to dry, glaze and fire my creation and post it to me, a wonderful memory to have from my trip to Scotland!'

Ardgye House was perfectly suited to our needs for a three night stay. The annex was spotlessly clean all our needs were me. Well stocked kitchenette, supe powerful shower. Welcome card, food hamper, we locally made soaps and dressing gowns all nice extra touches. Kerry was a perfect host and very responsive to messages giving good recommendations to local amenities. We ate out in the little garden one night as the weather was kind to us and the little garden is a welcome addition to to flat. Can’t fault our experience and so handy for exploring the beautiful coastline.

Jenny was very knowledgeable and helpful... and patient with my getting to grips with the wheel. I liked that Jenny offered guidance for how to bring my own ideas to life, rather than giving strict rules of what I had to create. Set in a lovely peaceful area, just minutes from the coast, this was a great way to spend a day.

Lovely day spent with Jenny in her workshop. It was our first pottery experience and Jenny was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed learning some of the techniques used to create our own work and will definitely be continuing our new hobby. Thank you Jenny.
