What will be covered in the class?
Join popular ceramicist Andrew Macdermott for this one-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.

Location
Ceramics Studio (Ground floor with raised tables, narrow doorways).

Tutor 
Andrew Macdermott is a product of evening pottery classes at Milton Keynes Arts Centre. ‘I fell in love with the tactile clay immediately and now a few years on I teach the class I learnt in.’ Andy makes and sells Icelandic-inspired ceramic pieces at craft fairs and galleries across the country.
