Learn about the traditional floral forms unique to the Iznik school of ceramics.  Practice brushwork techniques for applying glaze to ceramics. 

Then decorate and glaze a stoneware plate using your new skills. 

After you have applied your design, the plate will be fired and covered in a clear protective glaze. 

What should I bring?

All materials will be provided in the class.

In addition to course fees, clay/bisque will be charged at £2.50 per 500g of fired material. This should be paid at the end of the course, on collection of your fired piece.

The ventilation system in our workshop can result in the room feeling cold; we recommend bringing a jumper that you do not mind getting a little grubby.

Who is this course for?

All levels of experience and ability welcome

What if I do not finish my work?

Students will be guided through lessons with the aim of students leaving with fired, and glazed pieces by the end of the week. However, this cannot be guaranteed as each class must move at its own pace. Students who have fired, but unglazed pieces may attend an additional glazing day. Glazing days will be scheduled for one day per term.

We regret that due to the busy nature of our workshop, we cannot accommodate students at different times.

Finally, we cannot guarantee that work won’t be damaged in the kiln or not survive a firing.

What days do I attend?

This course will take place over 8 consecutive Tuesday evenings.

Do you offer concessions?

Yes, we offer concessions for full time students and OAPs.

To receive a concession, please apply via our online form.
