Pottery Introduction

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

In this introduction to pottery, you will experiment with the fundamental hand building techniques of pinching, coiling and slab building. Using these techniques, you can create a range of forms, varying from functional ware to sculptural. There is so much you can learn and then implement from your own home, the possibilities are endless.

This course will use a variety of teaching methods, including one to one tutorials and group demonstrations. Students will receive one to one support from your tutor to discuss and develop personal projects using a range of ceramic techniques.

The cost of this course includes one bag of clay (buff stoneware), use of tools, firing, and materials for decorating and glazing. Our pottery supply shop stocks a wide variety of products you may wish to explore further and is open during business hours. This course will have a maximum of 10 students.

Please note: An additional fee will apply to firing your pieces, this will be determined by the amount of space your work takes in the kiln.
