About the Course

This 4 week evening class, run by Fiona, is aimed at complete beginners who would like an introductory course in working creatively with clay. You are also welcome to join the course if you have a little prior experience and would like to refresh or build upon your skills. Fiona will demonstrate various approaches and techniques, and you can then make pieces of your own design.

It will include handbuilding- coilbuilding and handmade tiles; wheelthrowing; surface decoration- applying colour, texture and pattern; and glazing. Each weekly session is from 6 - 8.30pm on Wednesdays. New processes are covered each week, and you will learn about handling the clay at different stages.

Small class sizes (max 7 in this class) so lots of hands-on support; all materials and tools are provided; and all work will be fired for you. Your pieces will be glazed in the last session and then ready to collect (after firing) about a week later (smaller tiles pieces ready sooner).

£130 per person, inclusive of materials,preparation and firings.
