What I'll learn
If you are inspired by the creative potential of clay then this is the course for you. You are encouraged to develop your skills and knowledge of ceramic materials and processes which could lead to self employment or progression to other specialist courses.
Areas covered in the course include throwing, slip-casting, hand-building, glaze formulation, decorating techniques and firing.
More advanced students will be encouraged to develop their own ideas through personal tutorials with the tutor.
How I'll learn
This is a non-accredited daytime course but you will be taught Level 4 (Higher National Diploma level) techniques and processes through practical projects, demonstrations and visits to working potteries and exhibitions.
Learning is through a series of self-initiated projects which encourage you to explore a variety of ceramic processes and techniques. This is a practical course with group and individual demonstrations. All practice is supported by theory and technical information.
How I'll be assessed
There is no formal assessment for this course.
