Claire Ireland Introduces her Ceramic Workshop
Join the next course and get your hands creating
I have been teaching a variety of courses over the last ten years while I have been a resident artist at the Museum and have noticed that the desire to be creative is stronger than ever which has resulted in the increase of students wanting to enrol in good quality adult education courses.
Ceramics is proving to be one of the most popular subjects and the Turner Prize Winner Grayson Perry, one of the most notorious potters in the world is partly to blame. His work has gained an enormous amount of public attention, which has impacted massively on the larger world of ceramics.
So it is very forward thinking of the Steam Museum here in Brentford to establish and support a Ceramics Workshop as part of their ever-expanding education programme.
As an experienced tutor and maker I have devised a course to help develop ideas and skills for students with previous experience in clay but also a range of projects to introduce beginners to the diversity of the medium.
This course explores contemporary approaches to hand building and casting techniques using different clay bodies, including paper clay. They can also try out smoke firing techniques, which involves using seaweed and sawdust to create smoky effects.
