Information about the classes we offer

Beginners classes

If you are new to working with clay or want to go over the basics again, one of our beginner's classes is the perfect way to start. The Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening beginner's run over seven weeks and give you a structured introduction to hand-building with clay - pinching, coiling, and building with slabs as well as the more unusual Japanese-inspired kurinuki. We will explore several types of surface decoration and  glazing and you will have a taste of throwing and turning over two weeks.

If you would prefer to focus on throwing the Tuesday  and Thursday classes are suitable for beginners or those with a little bit of experience and will focus completely on the wheel. All materials are included in the class fees and there is a small additional charge for firing by weight of finished glazed work.

General classes

The general ceramics classes are suitable for anyone who has completed a beginner's class or has some experience working with clay. We will guide and support your making with both hand-building and throwing, introducing you to a wide range of techniques to realise your ideas. Bring your sketches, photographs, or any research materials you wish to use as a starting point. We have a fantastic range of ceramics books and journals in the studio if you are looking for inspiration. All materials are included in the class fee and there is a small additional charge for firing by weight of finished work.
