Introduction to Ceramics
Covering basic hand building techniques in clay, including coiling, throwing and slab building, take home finished pieces and an understanding of the art of clay and ceramics.
Develop and broaden your knowledge of ceramics through set exercises and demonstrations. Take the time to build on individual projects while learning new techniques like throwing, coiling and press moulding.
Explore and experiment with exciting ceramic processes which will take you on a journey through the construction, decoration and realisation of your design ideas in ceramic.
Ceramics Workshops in Schools
I also run ceramic workshops within schools on a daily or half day basis. These can de designed to fit in with a curriculum theme, topical subject or inspired by an Artist or Art Movement. Techniques covered include coiling, slab-building, low-relief work and sculpture. Arrangements can be made for the firing of work if there is no kiln at school or air drying clay can be used.
Ceramics Consultancy and Training in Schools
I provide a consultancy service to schools, advising and training Art Departments on the teaching of Ceramics within a school environment, this can also include the technical aspects of glazing and loading and firing kilns.
