Students have the opportunity to be self-directed in their chosen path of enquiry, with support and challenges from the tutor. Each student is encouraged to further progress their skills and knowledge by working through technical problems with the advice of the tutor. Historical and contemporary influences are 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, plus a termly raku firing. 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?

Some clay experience is necessary; students are advised to do the beginners evening course first. 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. One-to-one tutorial support from the tutor is always available on request.

What can I do next?

You can return to the class to further improve your skills, have a go at the Ceramic Sculpture class on Mondays with Emily Joy, or progress onto the Access to Art course at the College.
