About this class

Afternoon classes especially for beginners running over six weeks starting on Monday 25th April from 2.00 to 5.00, the last session is on Monday 6th June - please note that we will be closed for the Bank Holiday on Monday 2nd May. Reserve your place for this block of six three hour classes with a deposit of £40, the balance of £125 can be paid by card or cash at your first class. In the first four weeks you will be guided step by step through the three main hand-building techniques of pinch, coil and slab. In week five you will be introduced to throwing on the wheel and how to prepare the clay ready for throwing. We'll focus on centering, securing the clay on the wheel and pulling up the walls of the clay into a cylinder. In week six with the small vessels thrown in week five, you'll learn the basics of how to turn your work to refine it's shape and base profile. Throughout the six weeks we will look at lots of ways that you can decorate, colour and glaze your work. We have a great library of ceramics books and journals for inspiration. We keep the classes small so that we can tailor our teaching to your needs. All materials are included in the class fee and there is a small additional charge for firing by weight of finished work at £5 per kilo. All you need to bring with you is an apron and a notebook.
