 For those who can't commit to weekdays, this Term we have introduced a Saturday Combo class for you to learn both wheel throwing and hand building!

Over the 8 weeks, Viv will guide you through the fundamentals of both wheel throwing and hand building. Three weeks will be spent learning the basics of each technique and then you'll have a week to work on a project of your choice using either technique.

The course will cover the principles of wheel throwing - from clay preparation, centering and pulling up - and the different hand building techniques - pinching, coiling and slab building. 

At the end of Term, you will explore our extensive in house glaze collection and different techniques to put the finishing touch on your creations.

This course allows you to learn more about clay and explore two main techniques of creating ceramics - what a perfect way to unwind in a creative, nurturing setting!
