POTTERY – Evening Course

Creative Learning |
13th April 2018

Fri 13 Apr – Fri 25 May | 6.30-9.30pm | with Chris Barnes | £90

This is an introductory Pottery course for beginners and returning students who wish to develop their work. The course explores the practical and creative applications of clay and covers a wide variety of traditional pottery techniques. Students will learn how to work safely and creatively in a pottery studio, how to make thrown and hand built pieces – and gain knowledge of decorative techniques using oxides, slips and glazes. Experienced students will learn to improve and refine their work with new techniques.

The class is run with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. A creative approach to design and making is encouraged.

A charge will be made for additional materials purchased during the course. Please note there will be no class on Fri 4th or Fri 11th May.

Tutor led demonstrations, discussion, example work and handouts will guide you through the process.

During the course you will learn to:

  • Use test tiles to reveal glaze combinations
  • Use variation of texture to emphasise form
  • Make clay stamps
  • Decorate with coloured slip
  • Select glaze to emphasise texture
  • Construct with pre decorated slabs
  • Use glaze combinations on a pot/form
  • Use wax resist for decoration with glaze
  • Use enamel transfer onto glazed surface
