Sculptural Ceramics for Beginners

If you are interested in attending this course, please join the interest list for 2022.

This is a great opportunity to experiment with clay in a relaxed and creative environment. Learn new hand-building techniques or develop your existing skills. Explore how to combine pinch, coil and slab techniques to create a unique ceramic artwork.

During the eight-week course students will use hand-built techniques to design and construct two ceramic sculpture forms, using cactus and succulents for inspiration. One sculpture will have a colorful surface decoration and the other will have a textural surface finished with an oxide wash.

Over eight weeks, this course provides comprehensive guidance on sculptural form, making marquettes, hand-building coiling, glazing and finishing while you develop your own sculptural piece of finished ceramic art.

Course fee includes all materials and equipment.
