The course is for complete beginners and those with a little experience.
Enrolment is best carried out online.

Level 1 literacy skills recommended for note taking and handouts but not essential.
You will be taken step by step through the basics techniques of pinching, slabbing and throwing on the potter's wheel
You will learn how to decorate pots with slips and underglazes, and how to use glaze to decorative effect.
You will also learn about different types of clay, their firing temperatures and their suitability to different techniques.
Question and Answer as well as observation and verbal feedback.
We strongly recommend that learners wear non slip, closed footwear in the pottery area as there is often a lot of dust created and the floors may become slippery when wet if there are spillage
