The course will take place every Wednesday Morning from 10.00 am- 12.30 pm on the following dates.
During the course you will learn how to “wedge”/prepare the clay ready for making.
Katie will teach you various methods of handbuilding, and you will also be taught the beginnings of throwing on the potters wheel.
You will learn about surface decoration using coloured slips and various glazing techniques. Throughout the course you will also learn “good studio practice”, the art of keeping your work area as clean/tidy as possible, thus, benefiting everyone.
This course is designed to be a short intensive introduction to ceramic life at Sundragon Community Pottery
