Summary

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, throwing, glazing and raku firing. Studying historical and contemporary influences is advised for ‘homework’, supported by the wide selection of specialist books and magazines found in the library and classroom. Students will have access to electric kilns for earthenware and gas-fired kilns for stoneware. The ceramics tutor, Aimee Lax, has an MA in Ceramics from the Royal College of Art and is a contemporary maker who has exhibited extensively. Please keep some work for the Summer Art Leisure Exhibition if you wish to exhibit.

What do I need to join?

No experience necessary. A note/sketchbook for recording ideas for your work and glazing details is advisable, plus a protective shirt.

How will I know how I am doing?

Your tutor will always check your progress and help you with technical solutions. The class will participate in group evaluations, through informal crits or ‘show and tell’ sessions.

What can I do next?

You can return to the class to improve your skills, join the Tuesday afternoon Intermediate/Advanced Ceramics class, have a go at the Ceramic Sculpture class on Mondays with Emily Joy or progress onto the Access to Art course at the College.
