At the adult People’s Pottery Class beginners will be introduced to the many and varied methods of using clay to produce functional and artistic works. This will include pinch pots, coiled pots and slabbed pieces. Decoration of work will be explored through the use of slips (coloured liquid clay) and glazes and experimentation with surface texture.
Students with some previous experience in ceramics making will have an opportunity to build upon their skills already developed. For those who have not worked on the wheel and wish to do so, this will be the next stage of their progression. The emphasis of People’s Pottery classes is learning in a fun and sociable environment with each individual working at her/his own pace doing what they enjoy most. Students are encouraged to investigate new ideas, techniques and the work of contemporary and historical makers if they are so inclined.
Functional items such as bowls, pots, jugs and dishes can be made during classes as well as experimental sculptural models and tiles.
All materials and firings are included in the price.
