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 as well as an introduction to throwing. Alongside this you will be taught a range of different decorative processes using coloured slips and glazing techniques.
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.
