Standalone 6 week Clay Course
Six Week Clay Course
This class caters for up to 10 participants and covers the range of handbuilding techniques and some throwing. Basic glazing techniques and other decorative techniques are also covered on this evening class.
You will make several projects over the course of six weeks all of which will be fired and finished for you and can be collected after the course is completed.
This is a perfect opportunity to learn and make and to decide if working in clay is something you want to pursue. Participants can then register for the regular clay classes if they wish and will be placed on a high priority wait list for vacancies on these classes.
This course is run on Wednesday evenings – 6:30-9:00pm on the following dates:
Wednesday 6th September to 11th October 2023
Wednesday 1st November to 6th December 2023
This course is £250 for the full six week course. This includes all materials and firings.
