Description

You  have been re-directed to the booking page for Form & Surface courses. 

Choose your class time carefully please! Once they book out there is no way we can transfer you if you choose the wrong time! 

This course is one of our trilogy of foundational courses designed to introduce you different aspects of working with clay. The other two courses are our Porcelain Small Objects course and our unique Sow Clay Wheel course.  It does not matter which of the three you start with. Once you become a student with us you have priority to continue with us and move into a different course each term until you have completed the three introduction courses. Thereafter, you can continue to develop to a high level in one area if you wish. The content for the 8-week course can be found on our website www.slowclay.com.  

Please be aware there is more demand for our courses than we can satisfy. We try very hard to be fair to everyone but inevitably people miss out. We sincerely apologise.

An excellent introduction into ceramics, especially for complete beginners. Looking forward to developing my skills further in the next term!

I loved Slowclay and working with Pilar. It was my first time hand building and will continue to do so in my future! I received a great deal of instruction every class and appreciated all the one on one help. I can’t wait to sign up again!

After a term of wheel, and a term of handbuilding, I am officially hooked. The teachers, the staff, the founder - all equally passionate, caring, open, supportive and wondeful! Totally recommend these ladies know their clay! Andy
