The course is for students who have previously practiced the fundamental techniques and processes involved in ceramics. Students are expected to have had at least 2 terms, ideally 3, on the beginners programme before enrolling in these classes. Please do read carefully to ensure it’s the appropriate class.
You should have the following:
- A good working knowledge of the ceramic process and all core hand-building construction techniques.
- A good basic knowledge of slips, oxide and glaze applications methods.
If using the Wheel you should be already able to centre the clay. Demonstrations will be ongoing and specific to the groups requirements. These classes have none of the basic methods demonstrated and are meant for you to develop and refine your skills and personal projects. However, there will be practical demonstrations of all the above to enhance and develop your understanding and skills.
If the tutor thinks you do not have the appropriate level of skill required they may ask you to join a beginners to intermediate class. If unsure, please contact the art administrators: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
