About the Course
A comprehensive 8-week pottery course, during which, you will be guided through every step involved in making a finished ceramic piece – from wedging clay to applying glazes. We will cover some fundamental theory and focus on practicing various techniques for both throwing on the wheel and handbuilding. The course is suitable for adults who are starting out on their clay journey as well as intermediate makers who would like to improve their skills.
Our light and airy studio lives on the first floor of a historic listed building offering plenty of character and a tranquil atmosphere. We are located in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, easily accessible by foot from Birmingham city centre or by public transport.
Working with clay is a messy business, remember to bring an apron and trim long nails as they can get in the way of your creative expression. Please bear in mind that it could take up to a month after the end of the course for your pots to go through a final firing before you can collect them.
