Over the course of our 10 week pottery classes, students will learn a range of skills and participate in a variety of aspects of pottery. They will also be introduced to fine art ceramic sculpture making and have the opportunity to create a sculpture.
The Introduction to Pottery class is ideal for those with no past experience as well as those who wish to build their confidence and expand their skills in a relaxed, supportive environment.
The topic and technique will vary from week to week as students are introduced to the world of pottery. As they gain confidence they will have the opportunity to develop more personal artefacts and explore their interests.
