Ceramics (handbuilding)



Weekly Ceramics Hand-building Courses (10 sessions):
Thursdays 10 am-12 pm.

A chance to learn how to build your imagination in clay using all hand-building techniques including modelling, coiling, slab building and pinch pots. Working in stoneware clay students will draw inspiration from a subject matter first chosen by the course leader, then their own subject(s).

The course is flexible and will be delivered in a way that best suits the students and the time available to ensure an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

10 weeks of expert tuition with no more than 4 people per class in my studio with COVID safe procedures in place. Suitable for beginners.

Teacher: Paula Armstrong
I have been creating contemporary ceramic sculpture for over 20 years calling on inspiration from a wide variety of sources including gargoyles, African sculpture, sci-fi and organic forms. I enjoy the challenge of creating finely balanced pieces and delight when my work has an impact involving the viewer. Each piece is individually hand-built, most often in stoneware clay.

My professional background has combined 20 years as a professional artist, exhibiting, curating, working to commission and teaching across the UK, with working in local authority, voluntary and community sectors. I have taught regular classes in ceramic art and painting and drawing, as well as drop-in craft workshops, lantern-making, and community art workshops.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
