Courses will be run with a minimum of three people over a period of 3 or 4 days, or by negotiation. There will be full coverage of the technical skills required to produce a small piece of work by the end of the course. Materials will be provided, and kiln firing done in the studio. There will also be an overview of historical and contemporary work to give a contextual background.
