Improve your wheelwork skills in this improver level course designed to build your skills and enhance your efficiency when creating thrown ceramics.
What will you learn on this course?
On this course the tutor will work with you to enhance your skills in thrown ceramics, and help you to improve your efficiency, consistency and accuracy when working with a wheel.
You will also have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge of wheelwork forms.
The tutor will encourage you to develop your skills and through repetition build your confidence, encouraging you to be selective about work that is retained for firing, so that you deepen your understanding of the art of wheelwork.
The tutor will encourage you to produce functional and non-functional items after completing a piece you can apply surface decoration with the use of various glaze colours which will then go on to be fired in the kiln.
Who is this course for?
The course is aimed at improver level aged 18+ years. This course is for you if you are a competent wheelwork ceramicist, having completed a beginner course and are looking to develop your skills.
The course is accessible for people with disabilities but requires good manual dexterity and some physical strength and fitness. A support worker or a carer may assist. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a course to provide support. The room is wheelchair accessible.
Do you need to bring anything?
Short sleeves, old trousers and an apron are recommended but clay washes off easily. MAC can provide equipment and materials for participants, although attendees are encouraged to bring their own tools where possible to minimise the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
Are there any additional costs?
The course price includes all materials and firing of your work, however you must be selective on the work you choose to retain.
Please note that there will be an additional charge for any oversized work fired.
