Course description:

In this workshop you are invited to experience the sculptural versatility of clay. A chance to make hawks, sparrows, birds of Paradise and other wonders from the realm of the sky. With both guidance and the freedom to go where your imagination takes you, develop the skills necessary to form an expressive sculptural style. Perches provided.

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



The cost of materials and firing is included in the cost of this course. You will be encouraged to fire only your best work and the teacher will be able to advise you on this. You will use slips to decorate your work which will be transparent earthenware glazed by us for you.
