Ceramics for Beginners with Peter Biddulph
This course will provide a taste of (in the workshop), or a thorough grounding in (in the 9 week shortcourse) both wheel and hand-building methods, such as pinch, coil, slab, and casting. Decoration, finishing, and glazing techniques will also be explored, as will the various ceramics materials, tools and processes and the basics of kiln firing. Through the experience of creating functional and sculptural work, students will identify personal preferences for study in further workshops or courses. Selected pieces from the workshop may be fired for later collection.
