Whole day sculpture – Cats in clay

Date: Wednesday 8 September
Time: 10.00 – 16.30

Tutor: Finn Bush

Sculpt felines of the mind, from the wild to the noble. Sculpting freely and gaining inspiration from the many wonderful sculpted cats from history explore the world of this agile mysterious creature. Dog lovers also welcome.

Finn Bush is experienced in working both in education and the decorative arts practice. Ceramics has been Finn’s major means for expression right from earliest childhood attempts in his parents studio and during his creative career he developed a direct ‘hands on’ attitude to the use of materials and expanded his knowledge mainly on a ‘trial and error’ basis. He studied art for five years at Central St Martin’s and at Plymouth Collage of Art and Design and believes in the wide spectrum of expression offered by clay. Through his teaching Finn seeks to bring character and sense of freedom to the materials he uses.



The cost of biscuit firing or non-glaze stoneware firing of the selection of your best work is included in the price of the course. The teacher will help you decide what your best work is and what the allowed quantity is. This will generally fill kiln space of (35x35x35)cm or one large piece. Extra work can be fired at additional cost.

We recommend that you book a glaze session to glaze your work.

If you wish to collect your biscuit fired work, you can do this three weeks after the course.

You can request us to glaze your work for you in one of our glazes. A small studio fee will apply.

We will store your work for up to six months. If you would like us to post the work to you, please let us know and we will arrange this at extra cost.

This course is intended for adults but might be attended by students aged 16+ providing that they come together with an adult who is also a member of the class
