Beginners Hand building course (Level 1)
HAND BUILDING BEGINNERS with Sandy Bywater
Handbuilding with Clay is a wonderful, relaxing and rewarding experience!
Sandy will guide you through the basics of Hand-building, using the main techniques of Slabbing, Pinching and Coiling.
Over the six weeks you will learn how to make a number of different objects using these techniques, with both Earthenware and Stoneware clays, and to decorate your pots using a variety
of different decorative processes, including surface texture, using coloured slip and glazing.
Sandy will introduce each weeks session and give a demonstration of what you will be covering. The rest of the session you will be making your clay objects. Sandy will guide you and give
feedback on your work informally during the session.
Prices for courses covers all tuition and use of facilities.
Your makes are charged at £8 per kilo of fired weight, which includes Clay, decorative slips/oxides and our range of lovely house glazes and both Firings.
