What will be covered in the class?
Limited to four spaces only, this two part intensive is an excellent way to immerse yourself in the getting to know clay, or reconnecting with the material. Situated in historic Great Linford Manor park, we offer an inspiring environment with specialist ceramic facilities and a potter’s wheel for each student that attends.

On day 1 students will have an introduction into clay handling and wedging in the morning and will throw up to two 30cm diameter plates using the potter’s wheel, followed by an afternoon of building by hand. By the end of the first day students will have made at least 4 items, and will be able to choose 4 items to continue to turn and fire.

On day 2 students will return to refine their ceramic ware using the potter’s wheel and turning techniques to add a footer to your plate and create detail on your hand-built items. You will then be able to select which of our ceramic studio glazes you would like applied to your wears, which will be carried out by our on-site ceramic technician.

Who is this class suitable for?
This class is suitable for adults aged 16+ and is suitable for beginners and those with experience of clay.

A maximum of 4 places available.

What to bring?

Materials and tools are provided.

Intensive will be taught by skilled potter and Milton Keynes Arts Centre resident ceramicist Andrew Macdermott.
