Overview

Explore your creativity and create your very own pot! This course will entail the hands-on making processes of coiling and throwing on the potter’s wheel to produce ceramic vessels. It's suitable for both beginners and those at an intermediate level, but a working knowledge of clay would be advantageous. These vessels will be enhanced using texture and sculpture tools and the application of decorative slips.

Please note: any work produced will need approximately a week to dry and then be fired to biscuit. Participants will then collect their work.

Who is this course aimed at?

This course is suitable for both beginners and those at an intermediate level, but a working knowledge of clay would be advantageous. It will allow you to explore your creativity and get a hands-on experience, and you'll be able to take your creation home.
