Regular adults and family classes

These are regular classes paid in advance as 5 week blocks and are designed for regular weekly attendance.  These classes run every week until Christmas, and recommence in February.

Our regular classes will teach you the basics of creating both functional and decorative ceramics. You will learn a range of patterning and texturing techniques, how to attach handles and other decorative elements, as well as clay carving techniques. You will also learn how to glaze your work, and gain a basic understanding of loading kilns for bisque and glaze firings.

The initial cost is $250 and includes:

  • your own bag of clay
  • your own set of clay tools
  • 5 weeks tuition
  • bisque firing of your work to 1000C
  • glaze firing of your work once finished to 1200C (finished work will be dishwasher safe)

 

The cost for repeat sign-ups then drops to $200 for every 5 week block thereafter.
