Who it’s for:
People of all abilities interested in learning how to make pottery items for the home and garden. This could include functional ware for the house (e.g. plates, bowls, mugs, vases etc), pots or plaques for the garden, sculptural forms or small items such as jewellery.
What you’ll learn:
Beginners will be taught the basic techniques and skills needed to produce a variety of ceramic items for personal use. More advanced learners will have the freedom to develop their own ideas and skills with guidance from the tutor.
Pottery items are charged at 60p per 100g in weight to offset some of the cost of glazes and firing, and use of a notebook/sketchbook is highly recommended on this course.
Some time is spent during each block of classes studying either a ceramic technique or the work of a particular studio potter. These techniques are then practiced during class and ideas incorporated into an original piece (or pieces) of work. More advanced learners will be encouraged to do their own research and work to a plan over the duration of the course, producing at least one piece of work which has stretched their skills.
There is a charge of 60p/100g for finished work.
