Six week evening pottery class with Su Rogers from Bus Stop Pottery. The class will run from 7.30pm - 9.30pm on Tuesday evenings, starting 21st February.

Delegates will be taught three of the basic hand building methods: coiling, slabbing and pinching, moving on to basic throwing techniques at the end of the course. Once the basics have been mastered, our expert tutor, will support delegates in developing your creative ideas through more advanced techniques. More advanced learners will be given advice and tuition as required to meet their needs; they will also have the opportunity to follow projects set by the tutor or explore work of their own design. The overall aim is to enable delegates of this course to learn techniques and develop ideas through a mixture of practice, discussion and demonstration.

Please bring an apron and a cloth. Please be aware that there will be additional costs for firing items based on weight. Ages 12+

Calling Cranleigh Men....New Men's Shed Group 25th March
Saturday 25 March 2017 10.30am to 3.00pm

Picture of Calling Cranleigh Men....New Men's Shed Group

We need You to join our new Men’s Shed group opening at Cranleigh Arts Centre.

What is a Men’s Shed? A Men’s Shed is a larger version of the typical man’s shed in the garden – a place to pursue practical interests among like-minded people. Members share the tools and resources they need to work on projects of their own choosing at their own pace and in a safe, friendly and inclusive venue. They are places of skill-sharing and informal learning, of individual pursuits and community projects, of purpose, achievement and social interaction. A place of leisure where men come together to work.

A Shed’s activities usually involve making or mending in wood (e.g. carpentry, joinery, turning, carving, whittling, marquetry, furniture renovation) but may include metalworking (milling, sheet metal, welding, etc.) bike repair, gardening, electronics, tool renovation, boat renovation, model engineering (model railways, planes) and even building a car! Reclamation, reuse and restoration will feature strongly – and some say that is true of the men too!

Although Sheds mostly attract older men, some have included men of any age, women and young people. Whichever activities are pursued the essence of a Shed is not a building, which some don’t have, but the network of relationships between the members.

Come along to the Open Day on 25th March 2017 10.30am to 3.00pm to find out more.
