Once you collect your piece biscuit fired, you can choose to paint it at home using any paint or you can return to glaze your piece in one of our glaze sessions.

Clay tutor Finn Bush is experienced in working both in education and the decorative arts practice. Ceramics has been Fins 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 painting at art school but he believes in the freedom of vision offered by the material knowledge. Through his teaching Finn seeks to bring character and sense of freedom to the materials he uses.

Bring: apron, pencil, notebook. Please wear closed-toe shoes.

This course is intended for all ages. *Children aged 14+ are welcome to come with their adults.
