All our courses are suitable for the absolute beginner or anyone who are keen to review their understanding of the foundational methods employed in pottery and/or ceramic crafting today.
Structured to contextualise what the different modes of making have to offer while breaking each techniques down into basic steps for clarity, students will be encouraged to explore variations and creative applications of techniques over the duration of our courses.
We value small-class sizes. SO-CA operates on the basis of a maximum of 5 students to 1 instructor for any course.
