6 week hand-building course
Wed evenings /16th Jan- 27th Feb (please tnote there will be 1 week break, no class on 6th Feb, therefore course extends over 7 weeks)
Thur evenings / 21st Feb - 28th March
This course runs on weekly bases for 6 consecutive evenings (6-8.30pm on the starting date of your choice) .
The course suits both beginners and intermediate level students.
We will be working with handbuilding techniques and we will teach you how to decorate your work with coloured slips.
You will be encouraged come up with your own project you wish to complete. You may want to look through some magazines, pinterest to get ideas of shapes and patterns you'd like to achieve to discuss with the teacher.
Throughout the course we will present you with techniques of working with clay, explain what to look out for and what to avoid; we will also provide design guidance and support, keeping a watchful eye on the progress of your work. We will be there for you but at the same time we'll give you freedom to create and express yourself.
This 6 week course can be taken as a one-off clay adventure or as part of the continuous pottery skill building approach.
At the end of the course you will have a number of pieces made and they will then be fired and glazed in our workshop, ready for collection few weeks later.
