Activate Learning’s Reading College is offering two free ceramics workshops on Saturday 18 May. The tile making session will take place 10am–1pm and the life modelling class from 2pm-5pm.
Held in conjunction with Hey Clay!, part of the Crafts Council’s Get Creative campaign, the sessions will give people the chance to try ceramics for free.
Beginners can enjoy a tile making session where they will design, create and fire their own decorative tile.
Experienced artists or sculptors are invited to a life modelling class where they will be working in clay.
Both sessions are open to participants aged 19+ and are free to join. As places are limited, booking is essential. Please email James Collins to secure your place.
Anna Glanville-Smith, a Creative Arts Faculty Manager, says:
“Clay is such a rewarding material to work with, but requires specialist equipment in order to turn into fired ceramics.
“At Reading College, we have both the equipment and expertise to help you start a great new pottery hobby.
“Come along to the free Hey Clay! workshops to try ceramics out for yourself, and create your own beautiful work of art.”
