This 6 week ceramics 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 practicing maker wanting to develop your ceramic knowledge. Each week Imogen will demonstrate from a range of hand building techniques including slab, pinch and coil – wheel throwing plus surface design methods. The final week we will share in a Raku firing!
You will learn;
Introduction to clay types – firing – glazing | Pinch technique | Throwing on the potters wheel | Slab ware & surface decoration | Raku firing
This will enable you to develop a personal design led project, whether you want to make large sculptural work or tableware. Completed work will be glazed and fired, ready for collection around 6 weeks later (or can be posted for p&p costs).
