Decoration Short Course

August 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Decoration Short Course

Starting Tuesday 18th August 6 – 9 pm.

The Decoration Short Course is for those who want to learn more about some of the decorating techniques used in pottery. It is suitable for hand builders and throwers alike.

You will need freshly made work, leather hard work and sometimes bisque fired work for the classes – there is limited focus on teaching how to make your work – the full focus is on learning how to accomplish more advanced decorating techniques.

Prerequisites – You should be able to make basic forms on the wheel or by hand – at least an Introduction to Pottery or Introduction to the Wheel Short Course!
