This is an introductory course to hand building and sculpture in clay.
Throughout the course we will develop three hand building techniques; pinch pot, coil building and slab building. This will allow us to create pieces like cups, bowls, boxes, birdhouses or clocks.
The first three weeks will be dedicated to developing your skills by creating small pieces. Decorating skills like using texture, adding clay and incising the pieces will be demonstrated. Ceramic colours and glazes will be used to finish your work.
The following five weeks of the course will be dedicated to working on your own individual project. Everyone will be encouraged to develop their own ideas - inspiration, technical support and advice will be provided as required.
The classes will be located at the Glasgow Ceramics Studio; a spacious, creative working environment, which is ideal for a relaxing evening either with friends or to meet new people.

Pottery Taster Sessions
Private Classes and Workshops
*** Gift vouchers available ***
Ever fancied a go on the potter's wheel? Why not book a two hour pottery taster session? It's a great way to relax with friends and family while trying your hand at something different. Family groups with children and community groups are always welcome. A taster session can be a great treat to celebrate someone's birthday or even an upcoming wedding, and, considering it's the season for it, a unique Christmas gift!

The price of each session includes all materials, glazes and firings and all tools and equipment are provided. You can make as much work as you like during the workshop, and after glazing and firing it will be yours to take home with you. The glazes used are food safe. Your finished work will be ready to collect three to four weeks after your taster session, or it can be posted to you.

Private Throwing Classes
Are a great way to expand your skills if
you have already done some throwing and would like private lesson(s) to
learn some new techniques or create more challenging work.
Private classes with one to one tuition and custom tuition for groups can be booked at any time to suit your schedule. These can be taken as a one-off or as a series of classes to guide you through the entire process of making, turning, decorating, firing and glazing ceramic work.
The price for a one off class is the same as for a pottery taster session, but there are discounts available for anyone wishing to take multiple private classes.
