Event description
Two intensive days of demonstrations and making that will cover fundamental handbuilding and modelling skills. Working practically with hollowed forms, coiling, slabbing and coloured slips, Jeremy will help you to design and make a sculpture to either take home or that can be left to be fired at Potclays*. Using ‘the bird’ as a theme you will be shown ways to make exciting, dynamic and lively versions of this animal. Capturing the essence of the creature will be emphasised throughout the workshop.
Jeremy James is a well-known, award-winning ceramic sculptor. He has taught and operated a professional sculpture studio for 30 years, exhibiting his work in the UK and internationally, and his work is held in numerous public and private collections worldwide.
Items to bring: Photographs/images/drawings of birds, towel, apron, notepad, pen, means of getting your finished work home (e.g. cardboard crate)
Included: Course materials, lunch, refreshments, preferential discounts against all of our products.
*additional firing costs apply
