In this course you will be supported in designing and making your own ceramic pieces, using a variety of techniques as appropriate.
No previous ceramics experience is required as each student will be taught according to their requirements. Beginners are taught basic techniques to begin with so that they quickly go on to develop their own individual skills. More advanced students are shown new techniques to stretch their experience further.
You will be encouraged to develop your own ideas to produce finished pieces using established and experimental methods. You will be encouraged to use YouTube, magazines and books to broaden your ideas and discover more about ceramics.
The studio is well equipped with materials, tools and equipment and you should not need to bring any tools or materials with you. We do recommend bringing and using a small notebook to keep a record of your work and ideas. You are welcome to bring your own tools but you will not be able to keep them at Hive.
The ceramics studio has a small reference library which you can consult for inspiration and information about ceramics and ceramic decoration. We encourage students to look at a variety of sources for inspiration and information including magazines and periodicals, as well as online sources such as Pinterest and YouTube.
You will be expected to follow Health and Safety guidance whenever you use Hive’s ceramics studio.
