Ceramic Birds | Short Course
Contact course provider
About the Course
A short one-day clay modelling course where students will learn how to create thumb pots and the various shapes needed to create a simple ceramic bird. Students will decorate the models with underglazes and use the sgraffito technique to add details to their finished models. All the finished models will be glazed and fired for you and will be available for you to pick up at a later date.
It is advisable to wear clothes you don’t mind getting clay on, however, some rather fetching plastic aprons will be provided. Please feel free to bring along your own apron if you prefer.
About The Tutor:
After graduating from the 3D Design course at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2005, I moved back to Wales to established a workshop on the family farm near Aberystwyth. I made wood-fired stoneware pots and made my own ash based glazes. After working in the Peak District for many years, I moved in 2018 to my new studio in Sowerby Bridge (near Halifax), where I now make earthenware tiles based on medieval designs. I still make pots and once a year I take a selection of pots down to Wales to fire in the wood-firing kiln.
