Ceramics; Sculptural Forms and Vessels – April


This 9 week course is ideal for those with little or no experience in ceramics and would like find out more. It is also suitable for those wishing to brush up on their skills.  The course is held on Wednesdays between 9:30am and 12pm.


Course Content - What will I learn?

Suitable for beginners and those with experience of ceramics who wish to explore a more experimental way of working.

In this course you will be inspired by the shapes, colours and textures of organic structures and create a range of sculptural pieces and vessels. You will combine a range of hand-building techniques to achieve this including pinching, coiling and slab-building and you will add texture where required. Your pieces will then be finished with surface decoration including using coloured slips, underglazes and oxides and using decorating techniques including inlaying and sgraffito.  Course fee includes all materials.
