Over 2 weekends develop and refine your hand-building and glazing skills with our experienced Ceramics Technician and expert hand-builder Beth Bidwell. Create a centrepiece pot, vessel, or sculptural form in architectural clay. 

Over the first weekend you will learn how to balance and control the vessel as you increase in scale and play with form and proportion.

The second weekend will offer the opportunity to glaze your bisque fired pieces. Choosing from a range of SSW glazes you will learn how to achieve a range of finishes to suit your work. From high gloss glaze to volcanic texture and everything in between, have fun experimenting with colour and texture. You will also learn the basics of glaze formation and have the opportunity to make up your own glaze from our range of materials in stock.
