Pottery / Ceramics on Monday Afternoon
This course covers all skills from handbuilding and wheelthrowing, to surface decoration and glazing, and is suitable either for beginners or intermediate-level makers.
During this practical and structured ceramics course, you will be taught through group and individual tuition, as well as ongoing demonstrations.
You will explore the properties of clay and learn techniques such as:
- forming using pinching and coiling techniques
- joining techniques
- decoration (slip trailing, glazing, on-glaze painting and slip-glazing)
All under the patient and friendly guidance of our experienced tutor!
Basic ceramics materials will be provided.
We offer a wide range of ceramics courses and workshops that take place throughout the year, or you might like to try a different arts and crafts course. Search online or get in touch for more details.
Please note: this course only runs during term time.
The aim of the course is to introduce and build on your pottery skills. Once you have fired your own handmade pieces in the kiln, you will be able to take them home with you.
You can find immense satisfaction from working with the simple elements of clay, water and glazes, and de-stress from a busy life!

- formal instruction
- individual tuition
