During this course, you’ll gain hands on experience of making your own finished pieces of pottery to take home.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • Creatively explore texture, colour and glaze application on and into the clay surface
  • Make a piece of clay work using rolled sheets of textured clay
  • Produce a finished piece of pinched and coiled clay work decorated with ceramic colour
  • And/or combine the coiling process with a press moulded base made by pushing clay into a ready-made plaster mould.

Attendance and punctuality are essential to get the most out of this course. An interest in ceramics is essential. Most of the sessions will be practical and you will be expected to take part in all parts of the session.

Entry Requirements

There are no formal entry requirements for this course, but you'll need an interest in the subject. No prior knowledge of pottery is required to attend, and the course is ideal for beginners to pottery or those who have some basic understanding of ceramic processes.
