7 week course starting on Tuesday 7 February 2023 (excluding 21 February). 

Course Description:

For those with no experience and those who want to refresh their technique: these classes are a chance to unwind and enjoy the tactile, mindful qualities that working with clay can bring.

The first few weeks will be spent learning simple hand building techniques exploring coiling, slab building, pinching and press moulding with clay resulting in a number of amazing pieces. You will then be exploring different decorating techniques such as the use of coloured slips, surface patterns, using templates and glazing, but moving forward you will be encouraged to choose which technique you would like to continue refining whilst developing in their own clay style.

Please note, our classes are open to all abilities but this class is for adults only. Any queries regarding this please email arts-centre@le.ac.uk

Course Tutor:

You’ll be in safe hands with our longstanding tutor Dee Barnes, who has over 35 years’ experience working with clay. She’s a creator of hand-built ceramics, rather than throwing on a pottery wheel, and has run classes at Attenborough Arts Centre since 2015.
