Ceramic eCourse #1

$300

Explore your hidden artist and learn to create some ceramic pieces. Ceramics has been around for thousands of years, since humans first began carrying and storing food and water. The process of making something using clay accesses both physical and mental processes which stimulates the brain’s reward network, and assists with developing self-expression and self esteem.

Through the course of these tutorials, I will teach you about types of clay, specific clay skills and processes, glazing techniques and clay care. Any age or level of experience is able and welcome. Whether you are a family, a couple, primary or secondary student…. whatever age, an Artful Life has no boundaries to creating.

Through the course video tutorials, I will teach you about types of clay, specific clay skills and processes, glazing techniques and clay care.

The course cost covers all videos of me demonstrating each lesson, firings and my time to clear gloss and fire work again. I will also answer questions to help you on your journey of creative discovery.

Course costs are for 9 video tutorials.

I will email:

    • a link to all video tutorials; and
    • a handout for each activity summarising the information delivered in the video.

You will:

    • collect your kit from my front porch; OR
    • your kit can be posted to you – see postage below
    • drop off your finished work to be fired
    • no contact required!

Your pieces will receive up to 2 firings per piece (depending on glaze types used).

You must name the bottom of your work and return it in a named container when still damp, NOT when dry, as it is breakable at this stage to transport.

You can walk or drive to collect and drop off – simple.
