In our Ceramics Studio students can create sculptural forms from our large selection of clay bodies. We have earthenware, stoneware, porcelain, paper clays and variety of raku clays available.
Master a simple set of hand building techniques (taught in our beginners class) and you will soon be constructing your own sculptural clay projects.
Turn your creative ideas into three dimensional clay forms and fire them (bake them) in our electric and raku kilns. Use our pottery wheels, large clay extruder, wedging table, hand-building turntables, as well as wet cutting, polishing and grinding areas and learn to master a sand blaster. Apply basic glazes in the mixing and application area.
The facilities in this building also enable students to pursue small to medium scale projects in cast glass. We have a wax room with hot wax facilities, soldering irons, caulking guns and steam out equipment.
These are a mixture of one, two or three-day workshops run on weekends during the term.
Held one evening a week, these are run from 6pm-9pm for seven weeks per term.
Block Week Classes
The first week of each term is known as ‘Block Week One’. This is one week of the same class – so you get a good chance to really hone your skills in a particular area. The last week of each term is known as ‘Block Week Two’. We advertise the classes in Block Week Two at the beginning of that term.
