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.

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.

Please note there will be no sessions on 28/05/2020

Also note the pottery room is shared room with the plumbing and engineering courses. Noise levels can be louder than expected on occasions particularly when the plumbing students are using tools.

Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.

You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.

You will be able to use the knowledge and skills you have learnt to build on your experience on your next course.

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £100 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.
