This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

In this fun hand-building class you will create and decorate a series of functional contemporary homeware pieces, of your choice, in our new 'on trend' speckled clay. No experience necessary, as you will be shown various clay hand building techniques including coiling and slab techniques to construct your work. Draw some patterns or create texture in your design and add colour and personality using underglazes ready for firing in our kilns. Every object will be unique and once glaze fired ,at future date ,will be ready for everyday use. 

Make an individual table set of serving plates/platters or coffee beakers. Bring your inspiration.
