Jeremy James is a well-known, award-winning ceramic sculptor. He has taught and operated a professional sculpture studio for 30 years, exhibiting his work in the UK and internationally, and his work is held in numerous public and private collections worldwide. This workshop offers two intensive days of demonstrations and making that will cover fundamental handbuilding and modelling skills. Working practically with hollowed forms, coiling, slabbing and coloured slips, Jeremy will help you to design and make a sculpture to either take home or that can be left to be fired at Potclays (firing charge applies). Using ‘the hare’ as a theme you will be shown ways to make exciting, dynamic and lively versions of this animal. Capturing the essence of the creature will be emphasised throughout the workshop.

Response from Potclays Ltd.:Thanks for your review, Julian! Very glad to hear you enjoyed the course and your time here at Potclays. See you in August!
Just finished this Course today and wow, it was wonderful. I have no artistic ability at all - just an uneducated enthusiasm - and despite this, Jeremy was able to guide me to making a passable hare. It’s an addictive pastime and I’m already planning more work now I have some basic techniques.
Jeremy is a great teacher and was able to - with enviable ease - demonstrate, assist and guide on the entire process of making and modelling a hare sculpture.
I would highly recommend this course, great value for money and as ever, the Potclays folk are wonderful - very welcoming and friendly. I really, really enjoyed this course!
