Pottery course in Brighton - Wednesday evenings - 6 weeks
We run regular courses on Wednesday evenings in our loft studio in central Brighton. The classes are small, with no more than seven people, and lots of one-to-one tuition (and tea!) On-street parking is free. The course costs £235 for 6 sessions lasting 2hrs 15min each. This price includes all clay (choose from white or buff), and a range of glazes, underglazes and slips. Firing is charged at 85p per 100g of fired, finished work. Course dates: 8th, 15th, 22nd February & 1st, 8th, 15th March The date listed on the Craft Courses calendar is the date of the first session, and the classes then run on the dates listed above. I can also arrange taster sessions if you want to give potting a try before committing! Just send me a message with the 'message the tutor' button. If you are a beginner, or are not confident to work more independently yet, the course will take you through projects which will introduce you to the fundamental principles of hand-building. You can explore pinch pots, coiling techniques, and the use of soft and hard slabs. You'll get the opportunity to experiment with a range of glazes and decoration techniques. If you have some pottery experience already, then you can bring ideas for projects you would like to make, and we will support you to make them come to life! You can get some inspiration from our student gallery here. MAKE UP CLASSES You can re-book one unsupervised make-up session per term if you miss a class for any reason. These will be available during the times of another class (Monday evenings and Thursday lunchtimes), or on a Tuesday or Thursday evening. If you have unfinished projects at the end of the course, but don't want to sign up to another course, then open studio sessions can be booked to allow you to finish projects off. THROWING ON THE WHEEL Our 6-week courses don't include throwing as we only have two wheels and it requires focused tuition. If you are interested in trying throwing however, you can book throwing lessons separately.

In my own work, I use clay to celebrate the beautiful and diverse human body, by sculpting body parts onto beautiful and functional pieces of ceramics. I run occasional one-day workshops where you can make your own piece of body positive pottery. I also run regular pottery classes from my studio in Brighton, which are suitable for anyone and students are free to choose what they make. My classes are small (maximum 7 students), so lots of 1-2-1 attention (and tea!) is provided.
