This course at the Morley College Waterloo Centre is ideal for those wishing to increase both technical and design skills as well as develop a more professional approach. Whilst working on own and group projects you will be encouraged to experiment with different methods of making, decorating and glazing techniques, in order to promote individual creative potential. New and returning students work alongside each other in a mutually supportive environment in which you will learn both from your tutor and each other.
All students must follow physical distancing guidelines as explained by your tutor. There is a reduction in the course maximum of students in the Ceramics studio, which has been adapted to facilitate a safe learning environment. Students are asked to bring their own apron or coveralls to wear in the studio an d a personal hand towel, both to take home and wash between sessions. Before and after using any shared equipment, students will be asked to wash their hands. We strongly advise you bring and wear a face protector. Please bring and use you own tools - we also have basic tool packs to purchase.
Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
You will practice and develop both skill and creativity through personal project work, with guidance from your tutor. Your tutor will demonstrate and discuss a wide range of methods in all hand-building, decorating, glazing and on-glaze techniques for you to explore as appropriate.

You will be introduced to both current and historical ceramic practice through slideshows and encouraged to visit museums and galleries to compliment your contextual study. Your tutor will produce a wide range of resources and reference material for your use.
