A six week course suitable for adult beginners run by Chris and Fiona. Throwing, handbuilding and surface decoration.

Cyan Clayworks is a friendly not-for-profit ceramic studio set up in 2012 by Fiona and Chris. This course is suitable for complete beginners as well as those with a little prior experience who would like to refresh their skills. It is an ideal follow-on course if you have been on one of our tasters, as you will be able to learn further about working with the clay at the different stages and additional techniques.

Various approaches to working with clay will be introduced. This will include different kinds of handbuilding such as coil building and slab construction; wheelthrowing, and surface decoration with coloured slips and glazes, markmaking and simple monoprinting. Small class sizes plus two tutors running the course mean lots more input and more opportunity to develop at your own pace. Each technique will be demonstrated at the start, and you will be able to plan and develop your own ideas and projects. With over 20 years experience making, exhibiting and teaching ceramics, Chris and Fiona are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about this creative subject.

This six week course will run on Tuesdays from 6-8.30pm.
