Note: Term 2 2017 Form & Surface courses are in progress and are fully booked. Term 3 will open for new enrolments on 1 June from 1pm onwards online bookings only.
Term 2 Form and Surface classes will be taken by experienced teacher Pilar Rojas.
In this 8-week course students will investigate different approaches to working with clay using hand-built and sculptural techniques. Beginners start with playful, experimental projects and more experienced students are encouraged to develop a strong personal direction.
Experienced teacher and renowned ceramic artist, Prue Venables, provides a seductive smorgasbord of clay activities designed to open your mind to the many possibilities with clay forms and their decorative surfaces. No prior experience is necessary because each week takes you on a step-by-step pathway guiding new discoveries. Starting with three different clays, you will learn from the ground up! You will explore an exciting array of options for their surfaces and discover how each clay is intimately related to the visual options for it’s surface. Our students constantly feed back that Prue is one of the most knowledgable, patient and dedicated teachers around. This is a fun and gentle class for people who don’t want to be limited to the concentric! Follow the flow and see where it leads you…
