Join us for this fun course in which you will hand build simple clay forms (mugs/dishes etc). You will then turn your drawing/ideas into designs and using a variety of surface design techniques you will decorate your pieces.

We will begin week one with a thorough explanation of the equipment required and demonstrations of the various hand building techniques and examples of surface techniques. The following three weeks will consist of decorating your pieces with a variety of surface design techniques.

Techniques will include:

Screen printing
Stamping
Paper resist
Carving
Texturing
Painting
Slip decorating
Wax resist
Layering
A range of books and items to provide inspiration will be on hand. Participants are encouraged to bring their own drawings, interesting objects and inspirational books for designs.

All materials and tools are provided. Please wear clothing you don't mind getting messy.
