Introduction to Hand-Building and Surface Design 2018


This creative and engaging class is taught from my studio at South Block on Osbourne Street, only 5 mins walk from St Enoch station.

The 6 week introduction class runs from 6:30pm – 8:30pm on Wednesday evenings from the 28th February excluding March 21st (Feb 28, March 7, March 14, March 28, April 4, April 11).

Classes are limited to four people per class so it’s a very friendly, relaxed setting with plenty of time to ask in-depth questions about the methods and techniques used. The course is structured to teach a range of hand building methods with an emphasis on innovative surface design. This class doesn’t cover using the pottery wheel though there is chance to progress onto further classes covering wheel techniques. It would benefit both those with a strong idea of the decoration they would like to apply, and those who prefer more direct instruction. You will leave with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills along with several useable items such as bowls, mugs, vases and hanging planters.

The methods covered include coiling, pinch pots, slab building, slip decorating, and sgrafitto. This class is a creative, encouraging introduction to working with clay whether as an enjoyable one off or as a precursor to the Intermediate class.

The course costs £135 which includes all materials, firings, teaching and tools (including use of an apron!). There’s a £30 non-refundable deposit with the rest paid at the first week.

Gift vouchers are available if you would like to book a place for someone else.
