The inaugural Professional Development Program (PDP) at Slow Clay Centre is now active and we are excited to offer a course of study over a one-year period to supplement our practical studio subjects to expand what we can offer our students. The program has been developed with great care and consideration and helps to create a significant pathway to development. Eight units of study make up a broad and comprehensive foundation for continued development in areas that are not covered in our practical studio courses. Each term is offered for enrolment separately but priority is given to the previous term’s students. Each term consists of two different but synergistic units of study taught by industry leaders, experienced teachers and practicing artists, who will bring extraordinary inspiration and insight to the program.
Content: The study units for each term in 2019 are:
Term 1: Drawing with Sarah Tomasetti and Design with Simon Lloyd (bookings closed)
Term 2: Clay, Kilns & Firing with Robert Barron and Glaze Development* with Greg Daly (bookings closed)
Term 3: Lateral/Creative Thinking with Pilar Rojas and Finding your Passion with Jane Sawyer (Bookings open 19 June)
Term 4: Ceramics & Context with Gary Macphedran and Business & Marketing with Ingrid Tufts (Bookings open 21 August)
When: All units will be held on Mondays 1-3.30pm except *Glaze Development which will be held on the weekend May 24-26.
Fees: Term 2 fees range from $254 – $268 for Kilns & Firing and $425 – $535 for Glaze & Colour Development
Bookings: Each term will open for booking on the dates above. Priority will be given to PDP students to continue.
