A Handy Guide to Setting Up a Pottery Studio
I have worked as a technician at various Pottery studios for a number of years and have amassed a lot of technical based knowledge on ceramics. I also set up my own studio space that I use to make and sell my own pieces.
This is a simple guide on setting up your own pottery studio at home. It will go through important aspects from cleaning to ventilation. It includes a practical guide about what tools and equipment will be needed and how to recycle clay.
Also included will be a basic guide about firing your pottery and using glazes.
The best part of the guide is that it includes a one hour Video Call (or regular phone call) where I will go through the guide with you. This can be broken down into two 30 min sessions or one hour session. Come prepared with questions and I will help you the best I can and send you other resources as needed.
Please include your email when placing your order and I will contact you within 1-2 business days to set up our call.
