This course explores creative expression and process.
You will have the chance to work with one of the most spontaneous potters working in earthenware and slipware, working quickly and dynamically.
Your course begins with learning hand building techniques and plate making. The afternoons will be spent finding inspiration from nature in the gardens outdoors working on designs and drawing to bring ideas into play for your own work.
Dylan will demonstrate with decoration using slips and sliptrailers, brushes and sgraffito, and you will produce and decorate work that embraces spontaneity and reflects your energy. Learn new techniques in both construction and decoration and embrace the fluid potential of clay and slip.
The emphasis is on process with a daily check and critique of your work. You are encouraged to pull everything out of your tutor and everything out of your fellow students.
We learn in community, sharing lunch and refreshments together every day.
Participants are welcome to select a few pieces at the end of the course and take them away to be fired.
