About Weekend Pottery
Ideal for beginners or those moderately experienced, this course introduces a range of clay forming and decorating techniques that will equip you to work independently at home. A range of hand building approaches, wheel throwing, slip trailing and press moulding are covered.

Your fee covers basic clay and materials costs as well as firing. Although this course is focused on technical skills, once you have mastered the basics you are encouraged to pursue your own creative direction as well.

Expected learning outcomes: on completion of the course you will be able to:
- use a range of hand-building techniques
- throw pots on a wheel
- decorate with slips, oxides and stains
- apply glazes
