Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Information Dates and Enrolment
Share

Summary

Explore sculptural ceramics and non-functional forms.

Develop your ideas and your own practice through flexible projects – each term will have a theme that can be interpreted individually.

Develop abstract and figurative work, mould making, decorative surfaces, and explore basic paper-clay techniques. Throughout the course the practical, material tuition will be supported by in-depth art history and theory presentations, with access to specialist books and magazines.

Students will produce work with a wide variety of clays, techniques, ideas
and glazes.

You will have access to electric kilns for earthenware and gas-fired kilns for stoneware. Keep all work for the Summer Adult Education Exhibition and possible external exhibition.

Work is paid for by weight once completed and before firings, so this is an extra cost associated with the course. General tools are provided, but new tools are available to buy if required.

Emily Joy is a ceramicist, sculptor and installation artist based at Stroud Valleys Artspace, who teaches sculptural ceramics in the Art School at the Stroud Campus.
Since 2008 she has taught adults’ ceramic sculpture classes, masterclasses in mould-making, casting and paper clay, and children’s pottery classes.
Emily has a firstclass BA Hons in Ceramics and Painting and a Fine Art Sculpture MA, allowing her to provide her students with a broad range of practical skills, materials experience and theoretical knowledge.

How will I learn?

You will learn by observing demonstrations, through regular one-to-one tutorials, group discussions, and by exploring new techniques with expert support.

You will have access to specialist magazines and books, the internet and the library. You will learn a great deal by experimenting and recording your own progress.

Your tutor will always check your progress and help you with technical solutions. The class will participate in informal group evaluations and there is also the opportunity to exhibit in a local gallery, providing feedback from the public.

This course is based at our Stroud campus in the centre of Gloucestershire, surrounded by the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The campus is moments away from Stroud train station and easily accessible by bus.
