Summary

This course is for students who are totally self-directed and have a high degree of ceramics knowledge who would like a longer session in the studio.

Students can produce self-initiated projects throughout the year, supported by technical solutions from the tutor. Students on this workshop will be able to develop their work through an in-depth approach, but will not be excluded from experimenting with some of the set projects in other classes. Students will be encouraged to experiment with multiple sectioned throwing, screen printing, larger sculptural work, advanced casting and experimentation with coloured clays. There is an extensive selection of books and magazines for reference in the crafts room.

You will have access to a variety of clays, including earthenware, reduction stoneware and porcelain, as well as being able to fire work in the smoke and the raku kiln. There is a wide variety of glazes and specialist tools available. Students are expected to participate in the Adult Exhibition in the summer.

What do I need to join?

Previous experience and understanding of the ceramic processes, a sketchbook to record your work and a protective work shirt. Your own toolkit would be an advantage.

How will I know how I am doing?

Your progress will be discussed weekly with the tutor and the class on kiln opening days.

What can I do next?

You can return to the class, apply to another course or progress onto the Access to Art course within the College. Many become self-employed and set up their own workshop.
