Here are the details of the course you would like to enrol on...
This Monday evening ceramics course is fairly flexible for you to build pieces that you need or want in your life and is suitable for beginners or the more experienced potter. We offer open access for the more experienced potter and guidence through the process from start to finish for the complete beginner.
Students should approach the course with some ideas of things they would like to make in mind. Some basic sketched ideas will put you in a good position to start and achieve your expectations of the course. Pinterest is a great place to start and we also have a Hills Road Ceramics Facebook page for you to follow.
More advanced students are free to work on projects of their own, and are encouraged to ask for help and advice when needed. Total beginners are also very welcome and will be guided through various techniques including pinch, coil and slab building techniques. Surface decoration will also be examined. Four electric potters wheels are available in the studio for students to use, as well as an extensive range of glazes. Learning through controlled experimentation is encouraged.
We offer a focused and friendly environment to expand your knowledge and confidence in Ceramics. Please make sure you bring a notebook and a pen (preferably a felt tip as ballpoints tend to get clogged with the clay dust), so you can write down the steps you take, if you wish to progress with this discipline.
