Handbuilding & Sculpture Classes


Hand Building & Sculpture Class

This series of 6-week classes will include an introduction to the fundamentals of ceramics and the development of studio ceramic skills including hand building and sculptural techniques, decoration and glazing.

With a focus on establishing the basic techniques of ceramic practice, participants will have the opportunity to develop and work on ceramic projects of their own choosing throughout the 6-week class.   If students wish to continue in follow up sessions, instruction will be provided in more advanced techniques and processes that will be appropriate to the student’s level of skill.

These sessions are suitable for total beginners to intermediate levels.  There is a limit of 6 students per class session to be held on Wednesday evening from 5.30 to 8.30pm.  Bookings are now being taken for the following classes.
