Hand Building – Ceramics 8 Week Course

Hand Building with Ceramics 8 Week Course
Thursday evenings, 6.30–8.30pm
Lead by EOP member Joanne Masding and Sophie McKinney

Join artist Joanne Masding and ceramicist Sophie McKinney for an eight-week introduction to handbuilding with ceramics.

Over the first five weeks we’ll introduce you to a variety of handbuilding and decoration techniques, complemented with demonstrations and handouts, including slab building, coiling, sgraffito and using coloured slips. For the final three weeks of the course we’ll work with you as you put your new skills into practice and make something of your own design.

We encourage you to bring your own ideas to the workshops, and Joanne and Sophie will help you to make unique and personal objects each week. You’ll take home at least six fully fired, glazed, usable and cherishable pieces at the end of the course.

All sessions will be on a Thursday evening and and will run weekly from 19 March, with a two week break at Easter school holiday.

Suitable for those new to clay or with little experience aged 18+.
