In fact, we're confident our course gives you a comprehensive foundation in ceramics in the luxury and tranquility of our gallery space.
Is this the right course for me?
Whether you're a complete beginner or have some knowledge you will be guided throughout. We have a number of set projects with enough flexibility to add your own creative stamp to help you build confidence in a variety of methods and once you're equipped with the skills, you can take your ceramic journey in your own direction, should you choose to.
For Intermediate & advanced: Why not freestyle? You have the knowledge, you just need space to make & kiln space - we hear you!
Use this time to create to your heart's content. Equally if you want to join in our weekly projects (or want to top up your knowledge) you're in the right place!
This course introduces a wide range of hand building techniques including pinch pots, coil pots, slab work, pot thrown ceramics, ornamental and sculptural clay artwork, plus a variety of decorative approaches such as creative slip work, printmaking, scraffito, impressing and incising.
