Digswell Ceramics Community was set up by Debbie Bent with the support of Digswell Arts and the Heritage Foundation. Debbie is a ceramic artist and has been teaching for over ten years throughout the county including at The University of Hertfordshire and Oaklands College.
The emphasis of the workshops at Fenners is individual creativity with the eventual aim of each person being able to work on their own projects with guidance. The groups members are all at different stages of this journey and are very supportive and nurturing towards new members.
Techniques including pinch pots, using texture, coiling, slabbing and throwing as well as exploring materials including clays, slips, underglazes and glazes are taught with beginners following a set programme covering these elements.
Workshops run on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the following times:
TUESDAYS – 10am – 1pm
THURSDAYS – 12pm – 3pm and 6.30 to 9pm
The time is charged at £80 per month or a drop in charge ( when space is available) of £25 a workshop which includes most materials and all firings.
