Pottery Course: Intermediate 4 Weeks

This course has been designed for people with some experience who would like to develop their existing skills and start to gain knowledge in a broader range of building, firing and glazing techniques.

Every 4 weeks we explore a different firing technique, clay and construction method. Playing with materials and developing a more personalised approach to develop your own style of making.

Courses are broad and more than one area can be explored in our four week courses. Learning is at your own pace. Exploring what really interests you. You can opt into different courses throughout the year as they are constantly evolving to suit individual development.

We cover large scale, low firing techniques and processes such as Raku and Saggar firing as well as earthenware and stoneware glazes and techniques. Slab, coiling, pinch and slip decoration methods.

Should I be on the Advanced Course or the Intermediate?

The intermediate is for learners with a general experience, looking to improve skills and develop ideas with support. 

Advanced learners have a broad understand and are looking to develop projects of their own.  Also looking only for technical assistance to realise their ideas fully.
