Hand-building in clay, 6-week ceramic course
18:00 - 23:59
This course starts on Wed 17th Oct (6-8.30pm) and goes on for 6 consecutive Wed (6-8.30pm) until 21st Nov. The course suits both beginners and intermediate level students.It serves as an introduction to working with clay, but also provides an opportunity to build up and refresh skills for those who have worked with clay before. You will be presented with a few hand-building and decorating techniques and encouraged to come up with your own project you wish to complete. You may want to look through some magazines, pinterest to get ideas of shapes and patterns you'd like to achieve to discuss with the teacher. Throughout the course we will present you with techniques of working with clay, explain what to look out for and what to avoid; we will also provide design guidance and support, keeping a watchful eye on the progress of your work. We will be there for you but at the same time we'll give you freedom to create and express yourself. This 6 week course can be taken as a one-off clay adventure or as part of the continuous pottery skill building approach. At the end of the course you will have a number of pieces made and they will then be fired and glazed in our workshop, ready for collection few weeks later. Please, make sure you arrive on time. Number of students per class is limited to 7 students. There are two free parking spaces on the pavement directly outside our shop. More (paid) spaces available on-street around the Harold's Cross Park. On the completion of the course your work will be fired and ready for collection or shipping (at additional charge) in approx 4 weeks after the course ends. We provide all tools, materials and teaching. We also have aprons for all participants. Please, wear some warmer clothing as the studio can be quite chilly.
