Learn hand-building techniques to make vessels and sculptural forms in this fun 4-week course for beginners or students with limited experience.  

During the course an expert tutor will guide students through various clay production techniques with a focus on process and experimentation. You’ll be introduced to formative artists that work in ceramics and will gain an understanding of basic principles of working with clay.  

By the end of the course you’ll have finished either a large work or a collection of smaller pieces ready for firing. 

If you’re a continuing student or have some ceramics experience, you’ll be supported to develop your skills by taking more complex approaches to your work.
