Skills Covered

Throwing – Hand building – Surface Decoration – Glazing and Glaze Technology – Firing Methods – Studio Management – Business and Promotional Skills including Lighting and Photographing their work.

Students will be encouraged to find out what they really love. If it be a piece of architecture, a pebble found on the beach or a rusty drain cover, it will help them to establish their own ideas and pathways to follow.
They will also be encouraged to take risks and rise to creative challenges to really explore different working methods and the materials.

They will be expected to manage their own space, recycle clay, mix up glazes and pack and fire the kilns. Keeping a sketchbook to work through ideas, recording results and take notes will be essential. Familiarizing themselves with the history of studio ceramics, visiting galleries and following favoured artists on social media will be important.
