THE COURSE

A two-day intensive hands-on workshop which will cover all aspects of working with clay.

On day one you will be shown how to hand-build using some basic joining methods and how to wedge, centre and throw clay. You will also learn the basic techniques on a potter’s wheel needed for creating different thrown forms such as cylinders, vases, bowls and platters. Day two will cover how to apply pattern directly to the thrown surface using slip, surface decoration and how different hand tools can be used effectively for this purpose. You will also learn to 'turn' and refine your leather-hard pots using various hand tools. Basic glazing processes and an explanation of kiln-firing will be covered as the final part of the course.

This course can be booked together with the Intermediate Further Techniques workshop on 13th and 14th December 2019.
