This course is for those with a sound knowledge in the subject who can complete tasks with only limited support required. We aim in this class to further our creative repertoire and be able to use our skills in a variety of situations by ‘Handbuilding’ a ceramics project and decorating it in a method of your own choice.
Must have a basic understanding of pottery techniques and have hand built ceramic projects previously.

- Handbuilding the project
- Use of the studio space, facilities and extensive materials
- Explore different clay bodies and learn how they can be used to help you to achieve your design aims
