Description

Are you one of the many aspiring ceramicists that would like further support? You have loads of big ideas, a little experience (perhaps you’ve taken some of our other classes?) and you’re looking to commit to a more ambitious project? But you need the gear, space – and a little extra expertise? 

From practising your throwing to creating your own dining set this class really does give you free reign and expert guidance.  

Join our Bring Your Own Project Ceramics class.

 Over 5 weeks in a small group, the teacher will support you as you progress though your self-directed project/s at your own pace. You’ll learn essential ceramics skills, new techniques, get inducted (or do a refresher) on the machinery.

Less experienced students will be offered sample projects to help teach the basic skills. More advanced students can work on independent projects.

Total beginners – this is not for you. You are asked to attend our Intro to Ceramics course first. 

 

What do you get? 5 weeks, 3 hours a session, max 6 participants, and a dedicated Technician to help you:

  • Equipment inductions and/or refreshers.
  • Address skills gaps for essential ceramic skills.
  • Make a game plan for that next project.
  • Refine and resolve the design and work out how to tackle making it.
  • Guide you through your project from beginning to end.
  • Some materials are included, but students are expected to bring their own materials for their projects – the teacher can help with recommendations.
  • Access to the workshop between classes to keep your project moving on your own following teacher consultation. 
  • Free bisque firing 
  • Storage 

 

IS THIS FOR YOU?

  • Project Classes are intended for people who have achieved some proficiency in ceramics, but want a bit of support to realise more ambitious projects, work efficiently, hit new goals, or simply be safer in the ceramics studio.
  • If you are looking for totally new skills and this department is new to you, please check out our CLASS page.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Book into the next available Project Class.
  • Bring drawings, materials, (clay, glaze, tools etc) and anything else you need to work on your project. MakerSpace can recommend suppliers.
  • The technician will work across the group, making sure you stay on track.
  • Will you finish your project in the 5 weeks? Depends on your project and your skill level, but good things take time. It will likely take several sessions, and the Tech will be happy to scope this with you as you progress.

 

ABOUT YOUR TEACHER:

He trained in Sydney at the National Art School majoring in ceramics before moving to France to work in traditional French studio potteries in La Borne.  Since returning from France, Remy has been working in the ceramic field in Sydney in a variety of different roles, from artists assistant and studio management to teaching and course designing.
