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

Embark on an Experimental Ceramics course where you will have the opportunity to push boundaries and break the rules of traditional ceramics. Through playful experimentation, you will explore various techniques, glazes, clay bodies, oxides, and unconventional combinations to discover unexpected outcomes. This highly experimental course encourages students to explore and play with different elements in ceramics.

How will I learn?

The course will involve hands-on exploration and experimentation with different ceramic techniques, glazes, clay bodies, and oxides. You will have the freedom to mix elements that traditionally wouldn't be combined to see the results. The emphasis is on playing, experimenting, and discovering new possibilities. The tutor will be available to provide guidance and support as you navigate through your experimental journey. After the pieces have been glazed and fired, you will have the opportunity to observe the outcomes of your experiments.The pieces created will be fired and available for collection the following week.

Entry Requirements

Participants should have a basic understanding of working with clay. This course is designed for individuals who have already grasped the fundamentals of ceramics and are looking to expand their knowledge and push the boundaries of traditional ceramic practices. Bring your curiosity, openness to experimentation, and willingness to break free from conventional ceramic techniques.
