By the end of the course you should have at least four pieces (one for each of the techniques and one of your own choosing) of your own hand made ceramics to take home and share with family and friends.

“As a teacher I don’t like to stifle my students’ creativity by restricting what they can make so, once the technique builds are done to learn the specifics of each technique, rather than tell students what they can make, I prefer to help and guide them individually to make what they want to make. I encourage self expression and creative exploration but offer all the support needed along the way to build confidence.” Paula Armstrong
Classes will be Thursdays 10-12pm. The next course date will be confirmed as soon as possible within current government restrictions.

What's included in the price

10 weekly classes. Dates to be confirmed. The cost includes all materials, firings and access to a wide range of tools and equipment at the studio so all you need to do is wear old clothes that are ok to get messy.
