Who loves to play with Clay ... I do!
These are fun and informative courses.
We will begin the term by learning to understand the basic clay handling techniques such as, wedging, coil, slab, pinch pot, and working directly from a solid block of clay.
Students can then decide on the technique they wish to explore and research ideas on what they would like to make, working from either their imagination or find photographic references and artist models to work from. Once the piece is made it will be bisque fired and then a choice of under-glazes and clear glaze can be used to colour the work and then sent for the final firing. (Work is fired at BotsPots in Botany.)
Small firing, glazing, and clay charges will apply depending on the weight of the piece. Materials will be discussed on the first day.
The course is aimed at beginners and intermediate ability levels and will carry on into the following terms if you are keen to keep exploring, using the wonderful material of clay.
Come along, it's great fun and very therapeutic in our busy world.
(Minimum number of 4 students required for class to run, maximum 8 students) So grab a few friends and come on over.
