Introduction to ceramics for young artists 8-11 years, offering a fun and creative environment for experimenting with clay.
Introduction to Ceramics for Young Artists is a two-day course, offering a fun and creative environment for young artists to experiment using a range of techniques to create their own ceramic pieces guided by artist, Shane Keeling.
During the 2 day course, young artists will be introduced to ceramics, focusing on hand building, an early process of working with clay using the hands and simple tools. Day one will include practical demonstrations covering the basics of pinch pottery, coil building, and slab work. Day two will be dedicated to learning simple yet effective decorative finishes using slips and underglazes, with the opportunity to create individual ceramic works using the demonstrated techniques.
Over the 2 days students will make their own ceramics artworks and/or useful objects such as plates, mugs or sculptures which will be fired at Camden Art Centre kiln and then available to take home.
This course is suitable for those with little to no experience of working with ceramics. All materials costs are included. Size restrictions apply.
