Course Summary

This course offers the student the opportunity to realise his/her ideas through the medium of clay. The student engages in the process of creative idea development and the production of selected pieces using handbuilding techniques. Students set their own project and develop their ideas using both their visual notebooks and practical handbuilding skills. Students are encouraged to engage with more self-generated projects that reflect their individual interests. The course explores the application of basic decoration using slips, underglazes and glazing. There will be a number of group analysis and discussion sessions to review progress throughout the year.
