Who is this class suitable for?
Suitable for any level of experience.
What will be covered in the class?
Over this five week course, participants will use hand building techniques, slab and coil building and throwing to create something for a specific space indoors or outside. Artist leader Lizzie Westray will support learners through experimentation with form, scale, texture and using clay slips to apply colour before firing.
In an effort to make our site more environmentally friendly, we will be restricting kiln firings to a maximum of 6kg (raw clay) of work per student per term.
What will I need to bring?
Students should bring a small sketchbook and pencil.
