TERM 1 2023: Stylised and Abstracted Ceramic Forms (3 - 6 April) | Term One, 2023

Explore abstraction and stylisation; experiment and push the boundaries of traditional forms. We'll start by looking at examples of abstraction/stylisation, and some ceramic hand-building and sculpting techniques. Follow up with hands-on practice.
It will be a great chance for current ceramic students to continue or expand their practice, or for new students to experiment with ceramic construction techniques.
Work will be bisque-fired after the class and we'll email you when your work is ready to pick up.
Great for all levels.
