This price includes use of clay, a range of glazes, underglazes and slips.
Firing costs are charged at 85p per 100g of fired, finished work.
Classes run from our loft studio in central Brighton (Hartington Rd, BN2 3PA). They're small, with no more than seven people, and lots of one-to-one tuition (and tea!) On-street parking is free.
All classes are suitable for complete beginners as well as more experienced potters.
If you are a beginner, or are not confident to work more independently yet, the course will take you through projects which will introduce you to the fundamental principles of hand-building. You can explore pinch pots, coiling techniques, and the use of soft and hard slabs.
You'll get the opportunity to experiment with a range of glazes and decoration techniques.
If you have some pottery experience already, then you can bring ideas for projects you would like to make, and we will support you to make them come to life! You can get some inspiration from our student gallery here.
MAKE UP CLASSES
You can re-book one unsupervised make-up session per term if you miss a class for any reason. These will be available during the times of another class, or on a Tuesday or Thursday evening.
If you have unfinished projects at the end of the course, but don't want to sign up to another course, then open studio sessions can be booked to allow you to finish projects off.
THROWING ON THE WHEEL
Our 6-week courses don't include throwing as we only have two wheels and it requires focused tuition. If you are interested in trying throwing however, you can find out all the details on our throwing page here.
Demand for the classes is high and spaces are limited to only 7 people per class, so please get in touch as soon as possible to secure a place.
