Ceramics Handbuilding

Inspired by The Great British Throw Down?

From sculpture to chandeliers, decorative tiles to figurative work. Our ten week evening class introduces you to the world of hand made ceramics.

Taught in small classes by renowned ceramicist Wendy Lawrence you will be guided through all aspects of hand built ceramics, from preparing the raw clay through to finished glazed pieces. 

The tutors have been great and have opened up a whole new world to me. So much so, I have bought myself a wheel and a kiln and I am determined to keep practicing and learning. The course has been especially important as it did take a lot for me to actually enrol in the first instance. There is still so much I need to learn and would love to take another course. As I said earlier, the staff have been great and I have made some new friends which is lovely. Julie Vaughn-Roberts, Ceramics student
