Ceramics - Project Based Evening Course


This five week course is aimed at adults who would like to build on their prior knowledge of ceramics as well as explore new skills.

About this Event

Cyan Clayworks is a non-profit artist-run studio, offering tuition in ceramics at all levels. This course will be run by both Fiona and Chris, held over 5 Tuesday evenings from 6 - 8.30pm. It is aimed at those who have been on a course previously (this could be a taster class or a longer course, either with us or elsewhere) and would like to build upon what they know already. Perhaps you would like to develop your wheelthrowing skills, or refine your handbuilding, scale your pieces up, learn about monoprinting, or have a particular project you'd like to focus on. It could be an opportunity to experiment in a new technique that you haven't tried before. Each week will include one or two different practical demonstrations, from throwing, coil building, slabbuilding and surface decoration using slips and glazes. These will focus on a more in depth approach than our beginners classes. Once we have an idea of what students want to explore we can include other demonstrations. We will work with each student to help you develop your ideas and enable you to focus on areas you are most interested in. With both of us teaching, and a strictly limited class size, there will be plenty of hands on support. All work is fired for you, and materials, firings etc are included.

About Cyan Clayworks

Cyan Clayworks
Cyan Clayworks
Cyan Clayworks is a working ceramics studio and social enterprise, where we make tableware (Chris) and sculptural handbuilt vessels (Fiona). Both of us have been working in ceramics since the mid 1990s, making work for exhibition, teaching, working in community settings, and undertaking commissions. At the studio we offer regular courses for adults, bespoke workshops, and individual tuition. We have also worked with professional artists, designers and students. Other services include a membership for keen amateurs who want to access the studio to make work untutored. All services must be booked in advance. Visitors are welcome (but strictly by appointment only); get in touch to arrange a visit.
