Recently added Courses

Curtis Benzle - Porcelain - Colour and Light - 10th - 16th September 2017
The class is open to everyone.  While in the past we have had many exceptional artists in the class, we have also had many people with no previous experience with clay.  We will require no previous knowledge of ceramics again this year as we will be using specific techniques that do not require any "art talent". 
Residential Pottery Courses in France with Sylph Baier - 14th May to 14th October, 2017
It is mainly throwing based and would suit students with some throwing experience but other techniques can also be covered as well as glazing and firing in electric and gas reduction kiln
Jim Malone - 3 Day Throwing Course - 11th - 13th September 2017
Designed for throwers who can throw a bowl and a basic cylinder and would like to get to the next level, revisit already familiar forms and develop them to a higher level.
