During the week students will learn the techniques and motifs behind this entrancing form of ceramics before designing and firing their very own lustreware tiles.

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 500 g of fired material. This should be paid at the end of the course, on collection of your fired piece.

Who is this course for?

All levels of experience and ability welcome

What days do I attend?

Monday - Friday

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 the end of five sessions. However, this cannot be guaranteed as each class must move at its own pace. Students who have fired, but un-glazed 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.

Do you offer concessions?

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

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