Ceramics:evening taster course

This short summer evening course is aimed at beginners who would like an introduction to working with clay, using a few different processes. It will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm for three weeks in August, and will be run by Fiona. During the course there will be an introduction to throwing on the wheel; you will learn the basics of throwing and make some small bowls or cups. There will also be a focus on the surface; exploring markmaking, pattern and colour using coloured slips. You will be able to create a set of unique handmade tiles, and press moulded dishes using ceramic moulds. The last week will focus on glazing everything (any unfinished pieces can be decorated with slip and we will glaze for you later). Everything will be fired for you ready to collect about a week later. 

£75 per person, inclusive of booking fee, materials, use of tools, preparation, and firings.
