Welcome to the website of Ceramist Lynnette Hare - Worthy Pottery

Lynnette obtained her BTEC diploma in Ceramics during the early 1980s from Wrexham college of Art and Design, working in the style of Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada, under the tuition of Dave Hooper and Jim Malone.
Following that, she changed tack slightly and went on to study Medical Illustration in which she obtained an BTEC HND.
Lynnette has lived in The South West of England for 20 years with her three children, believing this wonderful part of the UK is the best place in the world for inducing creativity.

Lynnette continued creating pottery whilst raising her three children. She has been particularly interested and active in making Raku for 15 years and stoneware pots for the last 37 years. Her work combines her studio throwing experience with her desire to sculpt animals and other similar objects. Recently she has started to experiment with slab and coil pottery. Now producing from her pottery in Bradworthy Devon, she is on the committee of the CC&GG and Bradworthy Arts Festival, a member of WCPA, CPA, and had various exhibitions around Cornwall and Devon. Lynnette also runs “Potters Network” group on Facebook.

 

Raku day for potters, and would-be ceramists

Two Day Raku Courses £35 Per Person Per Day
Includes materials.

£20 deposit is paid in advance with the balance paid on the day.

Each course is split over two dates The next course is :-
Sunday 6th August - Making.
Sunday 20th August 2017 Firing.

There are currently 2 places left for these dates.

The aim of the workshops is to give you a sampler of the exhilarating enchantment of Raku. You will leave with lots of enthusiasm, stimulating your creative ideas and hopefully, some great pieces!

The making day. This will start with a pleasant introduction about health & safety aspects of the day during coffee, tea and biscuits.

For beginners, I will explain what Raku is all about. What sort of clay to use, how to make pieces that don’t fracture with heat shock, the thought behind the process and how the work is to be decorated. Hopefully you will aim to make two to four pieces of work ready to fire on the firing day.(Each piece - no larger than 12cm cubed. Extra charges apply to bigger pieces.)

Between the making and firing days I will bisque fire the work. This is the proof of the pudding and if they survive the bisque firing they should survive the Raku!

The firing Day. Again, I will take you through H & S of the day before you start glazing.Our aim is to fire up to 10 items, size - no larger than 12cm cubed. (larger pieces can be fired but there will be an extra charge depending on the size).



Bring packed lunch for both day’s. Teas and Coffee provided.
Maximum number of places 8 for making and the firing. (If no more than two people book on the day then the course won't run as it is not viable.)

Courses are held at Worthy Pottery Studio, Kimworthy Cottage, Bradworthy, Holsworthy, Devon. EX22 7RP. See my contact page for further directions.
