DATES 17&24 APRIL and 15&22 May 2021. This course will allow you to get a feel of what it is like to work with clay and glaze and begin to understand it’s potential to make a form. We will look at different types of clay and learn how to shape and mould it using a limited range of techniques. You will have time to experiment with the some options for decorating the clay surface through using clay coloured slip and completing the form with a basic introduction to glazing. There will be a charge for clay work to be glazed and fired. Students work alongside each other in a mutually supportive environment in which you will learn both from your tutor and each other.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
If you are a beginner student you will practice and develop skills in some of the basic construction methods and techniques. Each session your tutor will demonstrate new techniques and give guidance on project work, as well as encouraging you to develop your own ideas.
Intermediate students will be introduced to more advanced techniques of making and decorating in order to further develop chosen skills through individual project work. You will also be introduced to historical and contemporary approaches. We will have group and individual discussions and a wide range of resources are provided.
