This course is part of our Elective Skills Workshop series. You will be studying alongside students from our pre-degree and degree programmes.
Explore a range of hand-building techniques to create multiples and large-scale sculpture. Coiling, slabbing, straightforward hand-building, hollowing and press-moulding techniques will be used alongside basic decorative finishes such as oxides and slips. You’ll also develop your own project piece(s) – figurative, abstract or conceptual – based on your interests.
Processes will be demonstrated week by week. Your tutor will support you fully throughout the course in both group sessions and one-to-one support, providing regular feedback, critique and constructive advice. Although the course has a general theme and approach there is no fixed or prescriptive methodology and individuals are encouraged to blend their own experience with all aspects of this course.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- Analyse the work of others, applying findings to their own work
- Create sculptural ceramic work using a variety of techniques
- Apply slips, oxides and glazes to ceramic work
- Prepare ceramic work for firing
- Explain the firing process
- Research, plan and complete a self initiated project
