Event description

Description

This full-day ‘back-to-basics’ course has been tailored specifically for teachers and other educators with little or no formal ceramics training or classroom equipment. However, it is also ideal for all those new to ceramics. It covers all the basics of the pottery making process, step-by-step; from the tools you will need, preparation of the clay, handbuilding techniques and ideas for British Curriculum relevant projects to glazing of the finished pieces and how to use a kiln, Health & Safety considerations and much more. Bring your individual questions and queries along - they’re more than welcome. This course will build your confidence and fire your enthusiasm for ceramics, leaving you raring to go! You’ll leave with an information pack containing a summary of everything discussed, for your future reference.

Hosted by internationally respected potter Jacqui Atkin who is well-known for her many books on ceramic processes and techniques and who currently works as consultant editor for the new ceramics magazine Clay Craft. Jacqui is an established maker in her own right who has taught widely in further education, presenting workshops and specialist courses in hand building techniques and low temperature firing methods for the past 20 years. Her latest book ‘Making Pottery You Can Use’ was published in 2017.
