A pottery course in which you will learn a wide range of ceramic processes in a well-equipped studio taught by one of our highly skilled Ceramic Artists. You will be producing a body of work showing development of skills and ideas in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Course Content Beginners will be shown how to produce work using hand-building techniques such as pinching, coiling, slab-building, potters’ moulds and the potters’ wheel. In addition, you will be supported and encouraged to develop a confident understanding and use of clay qualities, making techniques, decorative skills, glazing, visual language and quality of finish.
Returning learners’ are encouraged to build on their skill-base to design and achieve more complex and refined work inspired by their interests and personal goals. The studio allows you, the learner, to express your ideas whilst other learners will have enough room to complete their own pieces of artwork and interact with you in a collaborative way to help you develop your artistic portfolio.
All learners are allocated with a 4kg (total fired weight) allowance of clay per course, this is roughly equivalent to 8 very large mugs. Please note this personal allowance is not transferrable between learners or courses. Once this weight is exceeded, learners will have the opportunity to have more work fired at a cost of of £5 per 5oog, purchased via reception.
In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2 ½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.
Please note there will be no sessions on 13th February 2023
