How many people will there be in each class?
There will be up to 8 students per session. We pride ourselves in our more relaxed intimate environment allowing more one on one time with the teacher.

This was my second slipcasting workshop with Decima and I enjoyed it! Each instructor brings slightly different and new insights to the class, which is very helpful for the students. Liz was a great instructor and led the class effectively - she was very efficient, keeping us moving along at a good pace, which meant we were able to see both of our pieces after they had been removed from their molds.

As a pottery enthusiast, I am always on the lookout for unique and inspiring courses to further develop my skills. The Decima Clay Pottery Course and School is, without a doubt, one of the most exceptional experiences I've had in my journey with ceramics.

Absolutely loved this class and would love it if it was even longer - slipcasting is surprisingly addictive! The tutor was great, really down to earth, knowledgeable and happy to answer any queries. The studio is great too, so easy to get to with a lovely environment.
