Ceramics - Beginners - Part-time

Course outline

Our beginners ceramics course is aimed at complete beginners and those who wish to refresh the basics.

Working in our well-resourced ceramics department, you will be guided through the main hand-building techniques of pinching, coiling, slabbing using different clay bodies.

Alongside this, you will be introduced to a range of different decorative processes using coloured slips and glazing techniques.

The course is limited to 14 spaces – due to resources.

Under the guidance and support of your tutor, the aim is for you to build a good foundation of skills and knowledge and understand the importance of safe studio practice so you gain the confidence to work independently on your own ideas.

You will receive an induction to the ceramic studio, excellent tutor guidance, new skills resulting in finished outcomes – glazed and unglazed.
