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 the Ceramics Introduction to Throwing course to learn or enhance your skills on the pottery wheel. This course is suitable for beginners as well as those looking to further develop their throwing abilities. The focus is on learning and improvement rather than creating finished pieces. Throughout the course, you will learn clay preparation, centering the clay, throwing basic forms, achieving good shape and consistency, and finishing your work through turning and trimming. Additionally, the course will introduce you to decorating slips and glazing techniques. You will have the opportunity to throw multiple pots and you will finish, decorate, and glaze at least one item by the end of the course. These selected pieces will be fired and available for collection.

How will I learn?

The course will provide hands-on experience on the pottery wheel, guided by the instructor. You will receive step-by-step instructions and demonstrations to learn and refine your throwing techniques. The emphasis is on practical skill development, allowing you to practice and improve your abilities throughout the course. The instructor will also introduce you to decorating techniques and glazing methods to enhance your finished pieces.

Entry Requirements

This course welcomes individuals with various levels of experience. Whether you are a complete beginner or have some prior experience with throwing, this course offers a supportive learning environment. The focus is on learning and improvement, so participants are encouraged to come with an open mind and a willingness to learn and practice.
