About this Course

A relaxed and friendly course, with the opportunity to cover a wide variety of hand-building, throwing and finishing techniques in a supportive environment. A truly flexible course, suitable for a complete beginner, those with experience or are continuing with the course.

 

Course Content

All main areas of hand building and finishing are covered (coiling, slab building, press molding, pinching, mocha decoration, glazing, slip trailing and much, much more...)


Each year is different; Ceramics is an extensive subject so with guidance from the tutor, students take the lead in what aspects they would like to cover, but to name but a few, this could be transfer printing, slip casting or porcelain jewellery.

What you will achieve

By the end of the course you will be able to use the confidence and knowledge you have developed to further refine your making and designing skills.

Progression/Career Path

Continue with the course, practice and build on knowledge gained, and extend into areas not yet explored.

Other Costs

A comprehensive range of clays, glazes and tools are all provided. There is a small charge for fired clay.
