10 Week Course: Ceramics for 11-14s

Sundays, 19 January – 29 March 2020
10.30am – 1.00pm
Half term break: 23 February 2020

This course offers young people a focused environment to develop skills, techniques and ideas through working with clay. Using the themes from the current exhibitions as a starting point, participants will produce a body of work with time to reflect on the process of making and on developing an individual practice. There will be an open studio showcase for friends and family on the last day.

The course will be broken down into a series of demonstrations and practical projects that will include:

  • Hand building with coils, slabs and pinch pots
  • Throwing on the wheel
  • Making and using plaster sprig moulds

 Alice Foxen will lead this course. Alice is a visual artist combining ceramics with textiles and found objects to create playful installations of objects referencing daily encounters, temporary spaces and the things which rest within them. Since graduating from Brighton University in 2013 she has exhibited in the UK at the British Ceramics Biennial in Stoke-on-Trent and internationally at The International Ceramic Research Centre in Denmark. She works in education and has recently returned from an artist residency at The Vermont Studio Centre, USA.
