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

Join our Ceramics Introduction to Earthenware and Use of Slip course, led by Gina Baum, as we delve into the rich tradition of British slipware. This one-day course will explore the techniques of hand-building with earthenware clay and decorating with colored slip. Through demonstrations and personalised support, Gina will guide you in this fun and interactive course, encouraging experimentation and understanding of materials. You will have the opportunity to create contemporary finishes using various slip application methods, such as marbling, trailing, layering, stamping, imprinting, and sgraffito. Your creations will be fired at the end of the course, and arrangements for collection will be made later.

How will I learn?

Throughout the course, Gina will demonstrate techniques and provide individual guidance as you explore the possibilities of earthenware and slip. Emphasis will be placed on hands-on experimentation, allowing you to play with materials, understand their limits, and discover the next steps in your creative process. You are encouraged to come prepared for a potentially messy experience and wear clothing that can get dirty. Don't forget to bring a notebook or sketchbook to record ideas and glazing details.

Entry Requirements

No previous experience in ceramics is required to join this course. All materials, glaze, and firing (to be completed after the course) are included in the cost. Whether you are a beginner or have some knowledge of ceramics, this course offers an opportunity to explore the traditional British slipware process and develop your skills in a supportive and creative environment.

Enrol now in our Ceramics Introduction to Earthenware and Use of Slip course and embark on a day of artistic exploration. Unleash your creativity, learn new techniques, and create unique contemporary finishes in ceramics. Come prepared for an immersive experience and leave with a fired masterpiece of your own.
