After a three hour session at kinsale Pottery and arts centre, I (an artistic neanderthal) produced
1. a clay plaque for my grandsons bedroom door
2. a quirky soup bowl or perhaps it will be a large cappucino vessel, failing that, wine will be supped from it's bowels (when all the wine glasses are in the dishwasher of course)
3. A present for my 'to be wed' daughter who just happens to be a Rhinocerous fanatic.
Adrian Wistreich makes it all seem so easy (and secretly we know that it definitely isn't). Adrian times the session very well, ensuring that you get to complete each piece (or project as he prefers) with just enough time to spare.
Location of the studio just a mile or so from Kinsale is really beautiful, with loads of space in the pottery to potter or whatever ....
A really enjoyable session, good for the body and good for the mind. Just wear old clothes and don't bring your best camera, in fact don't bring anything that you value, well lets face it, clay, murky water and paints are the focus of this activity - nuff said.
Adrian begins by explaining the whole pottery process and this is very interesting for anyone who has not been privy to the technology previously.
If time allows, Adrian will include a tour of the adjacent gallery. Sadly as our class were a bit on the 'slow side' we didn't have time for this but just another excuse to visit lovely Ballilnacurra again.
The cost €30 was excellent value for three hours and included all materials, + as much tea and coffee as you could drink.
I thoroughly recommend it for your body, your mind and your artistic cravings.
They also provide longer courses for anyone who wants to elongate their creative passion.
