  • What does it cover?

    Students are welcome to focus on sculptural and decorative pieces or functional items. Hand-building involves shaping clay without a wheel, while wheel throwing uses a potter's wheel to form clay into shapes.

  • What will it be like?

    Students will learn to center the clay, open it into a vessel, and shape it using the wheel, as well as various hand-building techniques such as coil, slab, and sculpting. The workshop will provide a comprehensive introduction to both methods, allowing students to explore their creativity and develop their skills in ceramics.

  • What else do I need to buy or do?

    Basic clays and glazes are provided, and students are welcome to pay for and order more specialist materials through the college.

  • What could it lead to?

    Students can continue to develop their skill on this course or others at the college.
