We are booking up to 12 people on this course, on the understanding that from 21 June all social distancing measures will be relaxed. If this is not the case, we will ask the last 6 people who joined to transfer onto the next available course.
We are committed to working with our artists and communities in continuing to provide opportunities for creativity during these challenging times. Together, we have been working throughout lockdown in reconfiguring our courses to ensure the safety of all concerned without compromising on quality. Find out more about our new safety measures.

Who is this class suitable for?
Suitable for any level of experience
What will be covered in the class?
Join popular ceramicist Andrew Macdermott for this two-day sculpting workshop providing students with a range of skills and techniques to sculpt and shape clay.
You could make your favourite animal, the human form or create an abstract, expressionist piece. You will experiment with materials and approaches to form a main piece by the end of the day. This is a great course for those with no experience or for those with some experience to gain confidence in creating larger pieces.
One your work is fired, you will be able to collect your sculpture at a later date.
What will I need to bring?
All materials are included. You may wish to bring a sketchbook to draw designs and make notes.
Aprons or coveralls should be worn at all times, along with hair-ties and closed-toe shoes.
Ceramics Studio (Ground floor with raised tables, narrow doorways).
