Your tutor will demonstrate a range of hand building techniques such as pinching, extruding and slab work to make a variety of decorative garden ceramics. Students will have the opportunity to make the garden ornaments of their choice and decorate them with coloured slip. Work will be fired and ready for collection at a later date.
All materials included in course fee.
