Beginners/intermediate courses 

People of all abilities are welcome to join, though this class is aimed at developing beginner’s skills, we will tailor to everyone’s capabilities. These sessions are held in the class area of The Kiln Rooms, where we like to create a comfortable, fun environment. Over the first 4 weeks everyone covers basic techniques such as hand building, mold work, throwing, decorating and glazing. After this you are encouraged to develop your own projects and ideas with the support of the teacher and others on the course.

Taught by Stuart Carey, Adam Ross or Charlotte McLeish – Stuart is the Technical Director of The Kiln Rooms and has fifteen years experience in ceramics culminating in a masters degree from the RCA. Adam and Charlotte manage the studio and both have years of experience in a variety of technical and teaching roles, as well as their own ceramic practice.

Classes are generally held either on Mondays 10am-1pm and 6:30-9:30pm, Tuesdays 6-9pm, Wednesdays 10am-1pm and 6-9pm and Thursday 6pm-9pm.

The cost of a 12 week course is £280 (Terms & Conditions)

Evening courses are sold out at present and demand is high. To be put on the waiting list for future courses in 2018 please email:
