Ceramics: Intermediate (WHH)

Course overview

Elevate your pottery prowess with our student-led ceramics course, aimed at the intermediate to advanced ceramicist tailored for those who want to delve deeper into the craft. Over five weeks, you’ll embark on a journey of creative discovery, refining your design instincts and honing your technical finesse.

You will be encouraged to experiment with various techniques, and research artists’ work to inform your design choices. Design development is encouraged through regular reflection on processes and evaluation of outcomes. Regular class discussions and critiques will allow students to learn from each other and develop design ideas further.

With access to a well-equipped workshop and firing facilities, students can expect to produce prototype work to develop further or final pieces that are fit for purpose.

Due to limited throwing facilities, we cannot guarantee the use of a throwing wheel in every session. Should you wish to develop your throwing techniques specifically, we have dedicated throwing sessions to give you a greater opportunity to work on the throwing wheel.

There are two convenient sessions for you to choose from:

  • Morning: 9.30-11.30am
  • Afternoon: 12.00-14.00pm

 

Aimed at the intermediate to advanced ceramicist, tailored to those with a confident knowledge of the basics who wish to enhance their design thinking skills and develop their technical skills further.

  • Insights into applying design methodology to your ceramics
  • The ability to analyse and critique your own work with a critical eye

 This pottery course is student-led, guided by an experienced instructor.

  • Setting and achieving personal goals through reflection
  • Building a network of like-minded ceramicists
  • Infusing your work with new techniques inspired by artist research
  • Progressing through disciplined sketchbook exploration

To gain the most from this course, you should possess intermediate-level ceramics skills, including proficiency in hand-building techniques such as coiling, slab building, and pinch pots. Bring along your enthusiasm for pushing creative boundaries and an open mind for constructive feedback.

Don your apron and bring along your trusty sketchbook. We’ll provide the clay, and completed ceramic pieces will be priced based on weight, covering clay, decoration, and firing costs. Please note that any unfinished work should be taken home at the end of the course as we cannot hold work for returning students.
