Pottery at Bradford College – Half day (afternoons, Option 4) (starts 26/04/24)

Start date:

26 April 2024

Start time:


This term we will be guiding you through a project adapted to suit the studio space at Bradford College. You will be guided through a range of hand-building techniques such as slab work, coiling, sculpting, how to pull handles and fit lids. You will be able to move your skills forward by exploring different surface patterns and textures. You will be shown how to use slips and glazes to create different decorative effects on your pots. For those keen to gain a more comprehensive understanding there will be chance to mix glazes too.
You may want to take advantage of the amazing ceramics studio at Bradford and have a go on the pottery wheel.
For the more experienced potter who wishes to follow their own project you will be guided and supported to do so, with a focus on building on your existing skills, especially with two tutors on hand!
No experience necessary, this course is suitable for both complete beginners and those with more experience.
