Through practical demonstrations you will be guided through making and slip decorating a range of ceramic objects for function or sculpture depending on your interests.

Kiln firing will be explained. Selected work will be fired after the course. The work will not be glazed.

If you would like to glaze work from the course you can book a place on the Glazing course where basic glazing techniques will be taught, with advice on which glazes to use.

My girlfriend and I, both complete beginners, really enjoyed the course! I feel like we really learned a lot over the two days. The teachers Alex and Lauren were wonderful and very attentive to everyone. And the course set up was great, small group, you learn all basic techniques and how to use different tools etc. and then work on your project, assisted by the teachers. Highly recommended.
