Service Description

This workshop is designed to introduce you to the world of Hand Building with Clay. You’ll learn the three core techniques used within Hand Building – pinching, coiling and slab building – and use these to create your own ceramic objects. In the first two sessions we’ll cover pinching, coiling and slab building. The third session will be spent exploring surface decoration and finishing off any previous work, with support from the tutor. Your work will then be bisque fired, ready for glazing during week four. The first 30 minutes of each session will be dedicated to demonstrating techniques, with the remaining time for practicing demonstrated techniques and working on own projects. This course is designed for beginners. On completion of the 4-week course, participants will have built up skills to potentially be able to join the studio as a member or embark on another course to continue their learning. Our studio is located in Unit 2C within the Deemouth Artist Studios courtyard. There is limited parking available at the studio on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please do not park in spaces with signs dedicated to specific businesses in the courtyard. If you have any queries regarding access, please email us; aberdeenceramicsstudio@gmail.com Disclaimer; we can take no responsibility for damage to pieces during firing. Pottery can be unpredictable and sometimes pieces can crack or explode during firing. We cannot guarantee creations will survive 100% of the time.
