In this two-week taster session, you will learn about the use of moulds in ceramics and explore how to use them and their benefits.

Using newspaper, masking tape, cardboard tubes, tissue paper to create your own unique form. You will have the opportunity to play with clay and make a sculptural form, from your own handmade mould.

You'll also be able to create your own plate using pre-made moulds and add pattern and colour to your pieces using slip and underglaze.
