1 Day: Introduction to Ceramics (1)

2 February 2019

Saturday 2 February, 10.30am – 4.30pm

Over the course of the day, participants will be given a detailed introduction to ceramics, focusing on hand-building, an early process of working with clay using the hands and simple tools. Practical demonstrations throughout the morning will cover the basics of pinch pottery, coil building, and slab work. The afternoon will be dedicated to learning simple yet effective decorative finishes using slips and underglazes, with the opportunity to create individual ceramic works using the demonstrated techniques.

• Participants will be able to select up to four final pieces to be clear-glazed and fired in our on-site kilns.
• This course is suitable for those with little to no experience of ceramics.
• All materials and firing costs are included.
• This course runs over one full day.
• There will be a break for lunch between 1.00pm and 2.00pm. Lunch is not provided.

Katie Spragg will lead this course. Katie's work combines clay with a range of processes including animation, installation and illustration. She is a graduate from the Ceramics & Glass MA programme at the Royal College of Art and a founding member of Collective Matter. Teaching and public participation are an important part of her practice; she has worked with Tate Exchange and University of Brighton, and holds a long-term post on Camden Arts Centre’s education programme.
