Course Content

Over this five-week course you will learn practical clay handling skills and gain a basic understanding of the working hardness of clay by learning how to use the coiling technique to build a vase or planter.

You will learn clay handling techniques such as slip and score to join sections of clay together and use a template to inform your shapes. Once you have made your project, you will glaze it using a combination of stoneware glazes and underglazes.

We will cover the following topics:

  • Basic clay handling
  • Joining coils of clay together
  • Basic hand building techniques
  • Combining underglazes and engobes where applicable
  • Exploring glazing techniques by practically decorating your work
