Saturday Ceramic Intensive

Led by our resident ceramic artist Belle McIntosh, our two day workshops are perfect for those with no prior experience of clay and those who are in need of a refresh. Over the course participants will receive 10hours of pratical training covering a range of techniques building the foundations of a solid understanding of pottery through hand-building, surface design with sgraffito, screen-printing and a one-to-one session on the potters wheel.

Participants will return on the second date to galze their wares and continue the exploration of ceramics.
Each potter will leave the Ceramic Intensive with a collection of unique, handmade items to be taken home and cherished.

To ensure an intensive approach, this course has a maximum of 10 places.
