Who is this class suitable for?
All skill levels welcome.
What will be covered in the class?
It’s that most wonderful time of the year! Let’s make some Christmas Tree Decorations for you and the family to treasure for years to come! You will create slabs of clay and cut out your decorations and decorate with patterns, textures and coloured underglazes.
Our technician will add a transparent glaze and fire in the kiln and you will be able to collect your pieces with plenty of time before the festive season begins! Students will leave with 4–5 Christmas ornaments each.
What do I need to bring?
All materials and tools are provided. Aprons are available. Please wear appropriate clothing for messy making including close-toed shoes and tying long hair back.
Ceramics Studio (Ground floor with raised tables, narrow doorways).
Andrew Macdermott is highly skilled potter, an artist who combines a love of texture and form with real passion about the therapeutic benefits of working with clay; this combined with a background in community development means it is no surprise that Andy's patience and kindness makes him one of the most popular tutors teaching ceramics in and around Milton Keynes.
In an effort to make our site more environmentally friendly, we ask that students respect our wishes to reduce the amount of uncollected/ unwanted work at the end of term by carefully considering what is they make.
