  Vitalise return to Shute Farm Studio
  Vitalise returned to Shute Farm Studio for the second time this year to complete a course in Hand Built Ceramics tutored by Nick Inns.
 

Jack who has already had experience of sculpting at Shute Farm Studio with Vitalise spent the weekend sculpting a fine clay head while the rest of the group learnt techniques of ‘slabbing’ and ‘coiling’ clay to make a large cheese plate and fruit bowl. The class formed patterns on the underside of their bowls and Nick applied over the surface a slip to which students applied scraffito of their own designs and patterns.

 

The group also enjoyed a session throwing a pot on the wheel. Nick and those working with him showed patience and understanding and everyone at the end of the course felt that had made a very special piece of pottery.

 

There was a farm visit at milking time at the end of the course where the group where able to stroke some of the young calves an some of the cows.

An enjoyable visit was had by all.
