    Ceramics is one of the most ancient industries on the planet and a complex craft to master.

    Throughout this 8-week morning course, you’ll receive hands on instruction from our tutor who will provide a blend of important technical advice with a passion for the making, using and appreciation of ceramic forms.

    Designed to fast track your learning so you can engage in further ceramics practice, the focus will be on the foundational processes of ceramic art as opposed to creating a finished product. However you will produce a small body of work for applying surface treatment. At the end of the course, you’ll have gained a distinct advantage that will put you on a pathway towards further learning.

    Intimate class size: maximum 10 students.
    Level: designed for beginner level students.

    All pieces created in the course must be no more than 25 cubic centimetres.

    Your works will be fired and ready to collect approximately 4 weeks after the course. We are unable to fire pieces made outside of the course.

    Students will be provided clay at the beginning of the course. Additional clay if required by students will need to be purchased from Pine Street online. To avoid any potential issues at the firing stage, we only use materials proven to suit our kilns and processes.

    Exhausted clay is reclaimed and recycled for reuse in our classes.

    Full instruction is provided on materials, products, tools, equipment and studio procedures.
