This mixed level course at Morley College Waterloo Centre is ideal for both beginner level and intermediate level students. Beginners will get a feel of what it is like to work with clay and glaze and develop the skills to make ceramic forms. You will look at different types of clay and learn how to shape and mould it using a range of techniques. You will have time to experiment with methods for decorating the clay surface through coloured slip and completing forms with a fundamental introduction to glazing. Intermediate level students will further increase both technical and design skills as well as develop a more professional approach. Whilst working on own projects you will be encouraged to experiment with different methods of making, decorating and glazing techniques, in order to promote individual creative potential. Students work alongside each other in a mutually supportive environment in which you will learn both from your tutor and each other. Please bring and use you own tools - we also have basic tool packs to purchase.
