How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for you to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including: demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical.
Your tutor will give you feedback during the sessions and during one to one tuition.

What do I need to bring with me?

Please bring an apron or overall to the lessons as clay tends to be a messy subject. A notebook, pen and pencil will be useful for taking notes related to your glaze. There will be a cost associated with the clay and glazes by weight.
