Four session course
A four week course (two hours per session) for people who want to learn the possibilities of clay. Each two hour evening class will be spent learning varieties of hand building techniques as well as surface decorations and ways to interpret ideas into three dimensional forms.
Week one will be spent learning a variety of techniques - pinch-pots, coil building and slab-building. Learners will then adapt these techniques over the following three weeks to create ceramic work from their own ideas. From pot making to sculpture, learners will be encouraged to use their imagination and interests to make work that can be decorated with, slips, underglazes, oxides and/or glazes.
Classes are for a maximum of five people, ensuring everyone has support in a friendly and fun environment. Prices include all basic materials and firings (which will include an initial bisque firing and a glaze firing). You can purchase additional specialist glazes upon request.
All abilities welcome. *PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A CHRISTMAS BREAK IN BETWEEN DECEMBER CLASSES FROM 20TH DECEMBER TO 5TH JANUARY. CLASSES ADVERTISED AS FOUR CONSECUTIVE WEEKS OVER THIS PERIOD WILL PAUSE ON THE 20TH AND RESUME AS FROM 5TH JANUARY
