This in-depth course for beginners will take you through the essentials of traditional hand-building and decorating techniques. The first 3 weeks will cover the three hand-building techniques of pinching, coiling and slab building; as well as decorating using slips, tools, underglazes and glazes. This will give you the basic skills to carry on exploring these materials and techniques with your own projects for the remaining 2 weeks; while Tara will be on hand throughout to give you plenty of advice and guidance. The cost includes all the materials you'll use over the five sessions, as well as the cost of firing your homemade items. You'll get a nice cup of tea with each class too, if you fancy. It's the perfect 'you-time' activity – and so relaxing, too!
