Masterclasses


Masterclass- Steve Harrison

Clay College is thrilled to offer a rare opportunity to spend an afternoon in conversation with renowned Australian ‘potter, kiln surgeon and clay doctor’ Steve Harrison. Steve has an international reputation for his pots, for making his own clays and glazes from local materials and for his hand-built electric, gas and wood-fired kilns. Steve is in the UK to build a wood-fired train kiln at Clay College and he will talk about this as well as sharing his approach to making his own materials, and building all types of kilns. This will be an interactive masterclass with plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The discussion will be supported by handouts relating to the topics covered. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for anyone who is interested in making their own clays and glazes or building their own kiln.
