About Ceramics Open Studio Days (ASC832 Spring)

Enjoy ceramics at your own pace in one of our Ceramics Open Studio Days. Explore your own projects and ideas in our fully equipped studio with a tutor on hand who can offer help and guidance if needed.

What will you learn on this course?

This one-day open studio is the perfect opportunity to spend a relaxing day being creative, exploring your own ideas and developing projects in our fully equipped ceramics studio.

If you are an existing student at MAC, this is a chance to continue work on your individual project under the supervision of artist tutor Sue Dyer, who will be on hand to offer help and guidance as required.

For less experienced students, you will have the chance to learn some basic techniques like thumb pots, coiling, and slab building, to begin working on a design of your choice. You will also have the opportunity to learn and apply some decorative techniques such as introducing textures and engraved patterns, coloured slip decoration, and glazing.

Our fully equipped studio will give you access to various stoneware clays, pottery wheels, glazes, colour slips, all necessary tools, and firing kilns.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for adults aged 18+ years. It is open to beginner and improver level students. The tutor will provide instruction and guidance tailored to your level, and advanced participants are welcome to work independently.

At the heart of MAC is a focus on accessibility and inclusion. Please contact us to discuss your specific access needs. You do need dexterity in your hands to work with clay. The room is wheelchair accessible and MAC does have accessible potter’s wheels. A support worker or carer may assist; carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending to provide support.
