What will be covered in the class?

You learn to use each technique individually as well as combining techniques and learning about glaze and resist techniques. Alongside this work, you will also be given the opportunity to see how different techniques work together and consider the work of well known ceramic artists, investigating the techniques they use within their own work.

Tutor 
Alondene Phillips originally studied a BA (Hons) in Printed Textile Design. During her BA she had the opportunity to study ceramics and discovered a lifelong passion. She has continued to study ceramics over the past 8 years and in 2017 returned to study an MA in Fine Art with a focus on Ceramics and Surface Design. Her practice focusses on using the  print making and surface design techniques to explore different techniques and push boundaries.
