This practical evening ceramics course introduces traditional hand building techniques through practical demonstration and guidance. Learners will also gain skills in glazing. You will develop an understanding of how to make clay pieces from two-dimensional research. You will also be taught and encouraged to experiment with decoration and glazes.

The course is divided into three main projects where everyone will make an object using slab building, coiling, and press-moulding.

Decorate your pieces using sgraffito and slip, wax resist, drawing, painting and simple printing techniques with ceramic colour and glaze.

The range of making and surface decorating techniques learned will give a great understanding of how to plan, make and decorate clay work creatively and successfully.

In addition to course fees, clay 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.

All other materials will be provided in the class.
