● Handbuilding – using a variety of methods such as slab, pinching and forming you'll create the diverse shapes clay can produce.

●Coiling – using this ancient method of building you will form winding and circular forms.

● Throwing – Getting started on the wheel, learn the process of clay to pot. You'll learn how the prep, centre form and build your clay into cylindrical forms.

● Slip - Using the method of slip design you can create a layered decorative piece on a form of your choice using coloured clay.

● Moulds and formers - Using Plaster formers as bases to build your pieces. At the end of your course, you will have the opportunity to pick your favourite pieces that you have created to be fired and glazed using a standard glaze at our studio, which can be collected 3 weeks from the end of the course.
