About the Course

This 6 week course offers people the opportunity to explore working with clay. The sessions are suitable for all skill levels, so if you are a beginner or a maker wanting to further develop your practice this can be tailored to suit you.

Imogen will demonstrate a range of hand building techniques, wheel throwing, surface design and you will learn about different clays and glazing. Each week will cover a different topic. This will enable you to develop a personal design led project, whether you want to make large sculptural work, tableware or anything in between

This workshop is open to all skill levels. Class sizes are small and friendly. Places are limited to 6 students to ensure plenty of one to one tuition and support throughout. Booking essential.

Course dates are: May 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th and June 4th, 11th. Session times are either 10am-1pm or 6pm-9pm. Please ensure you are able to attend all your preferred session dates as they aren't interchangeable.

Enjoy getting creative with clay at Imogen's studio in beautiful rural Dorset.
