This 6 week evening class will be run by Chris, and is suitable for beginners who would like an introduction to working creatively with clay. You are also welcome to join the course if you have worked with clay already and want to develop your skills further. There will be a focus on functional pots. We will cover different approaches to constructing ceramic forms: slab construction, press moulds, wheelthrowing and handmade tiles. We will also explore different ways to create surface decoration including using slips and glazes. Each weekly session will be from 6 – 8.30pm on Tuesdays. Chris will demonstrate each process and you will be able to make pieces of your own design. Small class sizes so lots of hands-on support (max 5 on this course); all materials and tools provided; and all work fired for you.
£195 per person, inclusive of materials,preparation and firings.
Our friendly working studio is a not-for-profit space, where we make our own ceramic work as well as teaching, so you will be able to see our work in progress.
