Hand-built ceramics course

The Studio, The Sainsbury Centre, UEA

In the spirit of Magdalene Odundo, this four-week course will support you to draw inspiration from the Sainsbury Collection to design and make a hand-built ceramic vessel. These classes will allow participants to see through the making of a piece over four sessions, enabling a deeper understanding of the medium of clay and how it changes throughout the making process. The finished work will be fired and glazed if desired.

Ali Hewson studied at Camberwell College of Arts, graduating in 2013. Ali’s practice is informed by her training as an illustrator - which can be seen in the use of gestural slip and the fluidity of the drawn line - and her ongoing research into historical ceramics, often from museum collections. 

No experience necessary, full technical support will be given and all materials will be provided. Suitable for over 16s - under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
