  • TILE // PINCH // SLAB // COIL - 4 Week Beginners Ceramic Course Posted on by Steph Liddle

    Curious about ceramics? Come join me for a 4 week taster course! Each week we'll explore a different handbuilding technique and play with clay to experiment with different shapes and forms. These classes can be attended as one-off classes or as a block of 4.

    TILE // Saturday 3rd February 2018, 11am - 1.30pm
    Starting with TILE, you'll learn how to make 2D tiles and coasters, and how to decorate them using decorating slips and surface decoration techniques, before moving onto 3D creations in PINCH, SLAB, and COIL.

    PINCH // Saturday 10th February 2018, 11am - 1.30pm
    Starting with ball of clay, in PINCH you'll learn how to poke and prod and pinch a lump of dirt until, as if by magic, you have something useable. Over the course of the class you'll have plenty of time to make a few small pinch pots which can be used as dipping bowls, for storing jewellery, or even as a tea bowl.

    SLAB // Saturday 17th February, 11am - 1.30pm
    Rolling pins at the ready! In SLAB you'll learn how to roll out slabs of clay which we'll then transform from 2D sheets into 3D wonders. Over the course of the class you'll learn how to roll out and cut even slabs of clay, before joining them together to create a pot which can be decorated using coloured slips and surface deoration techniques.

    COIL // Saturday 24th February, 11am - 1.30pm
    COIL fully embraces the satisfying repetition of a slightly monotonous task. We'll start by rolling out oodles of noodle shaped coils before stacking them up to create bowls, pots, and mugs. Over the course of the class you'll have plenty of time to make a number of small objects, or focus your attention on making one item.

    These classes can be attended as one-off classes or as a block of 4 classes. Each class is £30.00 per week, or £100.00 for a 4 week bundle. This includes all tuition time, materials and firing/post-production costs. After the class your work will be fired and glazed by Steph, ready to collect or be posted out to you in a few weeks time.


    Please email hello@stephliddle.com if you'd like to book into all 4 classes for the reduced price.

    Have your own ideas? You will develop these. Or bring in a photo of a painting or textile you really like for inspiration. Have fun learning how to make families of objects - through colour, form, texture, or a plinth - be it functional vessels or sculpture inspired by this painting. This method shows you how to think design and explore in depth. It is a creative conversation with your painting and the painter. If you have worked with clay before you will be surprised by your journey and the results and it will change the way you think about and look at paintings or objects. For those of you new to pottery you will learn core skills -such as slab building, coiling, throwing on the wheel and how to translate 2d into 3d, throwing on the wheel. Decorate your designs with slip, sgraffitto, sponge ware, glaze. Each session will introduce a new technique. Please note that pottery class payment is non-refundable.
