This course is for anyone from absolute beginners with an interest in developing a creative outlet, to students with previous experience in creative subjects who are looking to refine and expand their creative practice.
The course is very hands-on and student centred. Students will be giving practical demonstration and guidance for each of the techniques introduced by tutor then encouraged to explore their own personal ideas and areas of interests for that particular technique.
The class is usually small, so students will get plenty of one-to-one support throughout each session.
Students get to keep and take their work home with them.
No formal qualifications are necessary, just a keen interest in ceramics.
