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 develop and reflect on making and individual practice. There will be an open studio showcase on the last day.
The course will be broken down into a series of demonstrations and practical projects that will include:
• Coiling, slab work and free-form building
• Throwing on the wheel
• Press moulding and sprigging
• A range of decorative techniques including inlay, clay collage and sgraffito
• This course is suitable for beginners or those with some experience of clay.
• It is aimed at young people of secondary school age in Key Stage 3: Year groups 7, 8 and 9.
• All materials and firing costs are included.
Emily Stapleton Jefferis will lead this course. Emily recently graduated from an MA in Ceramics and Glass at the Royal College of Art.
