Hand building & Jewellery Making with Clay

Have you always wanted to have a go at creating a little bit of magic with clay? This course is designed for people wanting to learn about hand building. Getting creative with artistic pieces, practical usable pieces and/or wearable art. This will include slab rolling, coil building, carving, pressing glazing and more. We will look at developing a style, colour concepts, line, balance, weight, suppliers, networks and do a lot of talking to develop and share ideas. 

Participants have the opportunity to exhibit in our end of year diversARTy exhibition at Eltham Library Gallery to celebrate their achievements with friends and family.
