When learning ceramics you are often told what to avoid, in this course we will be looking at technically “wrong” ways to work with ceramics. Practising creative rule breaking we will get unexpected original results that can be manipulated into interesting shapes and textures.

Through the course you will:
Combine and explore different types of materials such as hard, fluid clay or clays with contrasting consistencies.
Produce a number of small-scale objects or sculptures that will be bisque fired.
In the second workshop you will glaze and add other materials to the pieces. There will also be the opportunity to make some new pieces that will all go into a high fired glaze kiln.

This course is suitable for both beginners and people who have worked with clay but perhaps not explored this side of it.
