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 .

Summary

The course aims to provide an opportunity for you to explore a wide range of ceramic processes and ideas at your own level.


Students new to ceramics will be guided through the basic principles of throwing, hand building, ceramic sculpture and glazing. A project will be offered, but you may come with your own ideas. More experienced students will negotiate projects with the tutor. Discussion sessions around work in progress, exhibitions and ceramic work will help to clarify ideas. This course will teach you the basics of ceramics principles, including throwing, hand building, sculpture and glazing. You will gain practical experience using the potters wheel and hand sculpting, overseen by our experienced tutors.


This course is based at SGS Queens Road in Clifton, Bristol.

How will I learn?

In this workshop based course your tutor will check your progress and help guide you with technical solutions through a series of short demonstrations and workshops. Students will develop decorative surfaces, exploring colour with slips and glazes, and experience a range of hand-building techniques.
