This short course is for very beginners.
You will start from learning a few ranges of clay and their different characteristics. Based on that experience you will learn how to handle different clays with varied shaping methods each week.
We will also go into a bit about surface decoration using sculpting tools, found objects and slips and glaze all the pieces you make each week in the final session. Although, the main focus of this course is more on the forming methods.
The course will run every Wednesday evening 2.5 hrs between 1830 and 2100, for 5 weeks starting 24th January. It is for a small group of only around 6 people and is aiming to be casual and creative atmosphere.
