Workshops // Coming up // Intermediate Large Scale Ceramics
9 September

Intermediate Large Scale Ceramics

Introducing you to a sculptural approach to hand building techniques, incorporating your ideas and developing your skills as you go. You will work towards making a large piece of work over six sessions, experimenting with manipulating clay and using a range of glazing methods as well as different surface treatments. 

You will also incorporate textures using slips, oxide/ glaze washes, and embedding different organic materials that will enhance the surface of your pieces. Finally we will discuss how you wish to fire your final outcomes, working within the dimensions of our kilns at the pottery. Work can be made in in one piece, or in sections and rejoined after the firing.
