What will I learn?
On this four week course you will make and decorate a mug, jug and bowl. Through expert demonstration and personalised guidance, over four weeks you will be supported to develop your technical skills while exploring your creative abilities with clay. During this course you will learn to form objects on the wheel, make handles and pull a spout. You will also explore surface decoration techniques in slip-trailing, sgraffito, inlay, stencilling and texturing. Sessions are taught through demonstration and one to one tuition with plenty of time for practice and experimentation. This course is a great introduction to pottery while also giving students with more experience opportunities to build on their existing skills.
What will I take home?
Learning how to make pottery on the wheel involves making lots AND LOTS of mistakes along the way! The great thing about clay in its raw state is that it’s sustainable and can be recycled and reused. On this course you will make many practice pots but you’ll choose your best six to fire in the kiln and take home.
