About the Course

We have several pottery classes for adults, and family classes for children to come along to with or without their parents. These classes are designed to cater for all abilities, from complete beginners to advanced students.

Forgan boasts two wonderful pottery tutors: Pat Peters and Heather Gilbert

PAT has been teaching for many years at both Waid Academy and Forgan Arts Centre. Pat is a highly qualified and experienced potter with a wealth of knowledge in both wheel work and hand building. Pat will teach you everything you need to know from creating a piece, to adding texture and pattern or perfecting the finish of your ceramics.

RAKU SESSIONS

The first 2 weeks will focus on creating ceramic work for raku firing using specialist clay. There will be a weeks break for drying and bisque firing before week 3 where a raku firing demonstration will be held in the playground and some of the first pots ready may also be fired. Week 3 will also be used for finishing pots for firing; beginning glazing and any experimental techniques to be explored. Week 4 will be the final week with the main Raku firing and any last glazing choices to be applied. The atmosphere at a Raku firing is one you will not forget! This is an opportunity not to be missed!

As the class number will be capped, we recommend early bookings to avoid disappointment.
