    Pottery
    Friday 30 September 2022
    10am-1pm

    £62.00

    During your workshop, Hayley Farrelly, from Bramley Pottery, will take you through the process of making two beautiful slab-built jugs with a patterned exterior and handle.

    Once your jugs have dried she will fire them in her kiln and then glaze them for you in a celadon colour of your choice.

    These gorgeous jugs are multi-purpose; the glaze is food safe so can be used for serving milk or cream or use them as vases with a posy of flowers.

    The pottery journey takes time, so expect to wait up to a month after the workshop to receive your pieces as this will allow time for them to dry, to be bisque fired, glazed and re-fired.

    Once finished they can be collected from her studio in Ballinger, or they can be sent in the post.

    Make sure you bring an apron and messy clothing to the workshop, Hayley will provide all the tools you need to make your pottery.

    This course accommodates 10 people.

    Social Media – Instagram
    Friday 23 September 2022
    10am-1pm

    £95.00

    Reels – the Superhero of Social Media!

    Do you keep hearing about reels but not sure what they are or how to use them? Using video and reels will help you reach new audiences, get your business seen by more of your target audience and drive sales online.

    Learn how to master reels (and not have to sing or dance! ) and unlock the potential of Instagram.

    In this workshop, with Kati Noakes of KN Comms, you will cover:

    • Navigating the algorithm
    • Using Instagram to target your audience and engage with influencers
    • What are reels and how do you use them?

    You will leave with a reel ready to post and a ton of ideas for more reels to do at home and you will also take home a step-by- step guide to refer back to later.

    And most importantly, you will leave far more confident about creating reels and content that will be game-changing for your business.

    Although this course is new to Studio Portobello, Kati has run many successful courses before. Read a glowing review from a previous workshop!

    ”Kati Noakes is a powerhouse of social media expertise. Not only does she have an enviable grasp of the complexities surrounding the various online platforms and knowledge of how to use them effectively but she can communicate that knowledge in a way that is concise and straightforward. This is not the first social media workshop I have done but it is the first where I have come away understanding precisely what I need to do to get social media working for my business properly. Once I have mastered the basic/intermediate level I will definitely be going back for an advanced session. The beauty of training with Kati is that she is on hand in the weeks after the session to help with any glitches and she has a genuine interest in watching you succeed. Highly recommended.” –  Gail Fogarty Photographer
