Summer Short Course: Ceramics - Slip Casting

5 - 19 August 2018


Sunday 5, 12 & 19 August
10.30am – 4.30pm

During this three-day course participants will gain an in-depth understanding of slip casting techniques. Participants will have the opportunity to create functional ceramic works which will be decorated and fired in our onsite kilns.

Week 1:
Participants will produce moulds in which to cast their works, such as a mug, vase, bowl, plate or jug.

Week 2:
Using the moulds made in the first week, participants will then slip cast pottery ware which they will have the opportunity to decorate using a range of slips and underglazes.

Week 3:
Participants will be taught how to glaze the work they've made during this course using a selection of dipping and brushing glazing techniques.

This course is suitable for those looking to develop their ceramics skills through working on a focused project. No previous ceramics experience is necessary. All materials are provided.

Sevak Zargarian will lead this course. Sevak is a London based ceramic designer maker working from his garden studio, with an aim to create beautiful objects for the home. A graduate from Central Saint Martins and shortlisted for the Homes & Gardens Young Designer Award 2015, Sevak has a passion for material exploration. Read more
