6 week throwing
The 6-week throwing course is limited to 5 people in order to provide you with sufficient tutor support. Generally, we start by focussing on the basic cylinder form, then progress through trimming bases and turning foot-rings, pulling handles and glazing, though content may vary depending on students' abilities. Participants should have some prior experience. For absolute beginners, have a look at our Private Throwing Tuition as a starting point.
6 week hand building
Our regular 6-week courses are open level. Students will be taken step-by-step through a range of hand-building and decoration techniques for a series of projects. Less experienced participants will be fully directed and supported throughout the course. Those with more experience can be more self-directed and choose their own path of study.
weekend / one-off
We provide a range of short courses with a variety of specific goals. These run on weekends, over one or two days. They will be available to book on our website as and when the dates are confirmed. One-off workshops are aimed at complete beginners, but those with more experience are always welcome.
Our family ceramics course is run over three mornings per term. It gives parents / grandparents / guardians and their children an opportunity to come and spend some quality time together and be creative. Each session will teach basic skills and allow families to make and glaze a ceramic object.
