You will look for inspiration in the objects found within the Wakefield and Kettle’s Yard collections, trialling a range of approaches, investigating shape and surface – in order to create a number of extraordinary pieces. You will be shown a number of techniques which will help you realise your final pieces including thumb pots, slab building, coiling and modelling. You will also glaze your works before they are bisque fired in Jo’s studio.
The course is suitable for beginners as well as people with some intermediate level experience of working with ceramics.
