No previous experience is necessary! We will start at the very beginning: from wedging and preparing clay, centring on the electric wheel, making basic forms and progressing on to more advanced throwing techniques. During the course you will make: functional and traditional forms (cylinders, bowls, cups, plates and vases) and other more playful and artistic pieces (the only limitation is your imagination!).

The philosophy of the school is based on the development of artistic talent using clay as a tool for expression.
