WELCOME TO CLAY COLLEGE
During these unfortunate times, the College Studio and Gallery are closed until it is safe for our staff, students and visitors to return. But Clay College is still very much open!
The students are continuing their course at home, and lectures, demonstrations and tutorials have been moved online. They are about to start a new module making tea sets under Kevin’s expert tutelage. You can follow their progress on our Instagram page.
The Clay College Gallery has also moved online and we had our first virtual Exhibition Opening on Saturday 4th April. There are still some beautiful pots for sale so please visit the Shop. By purchasing an item, you are supporting both the potters who make the pots, our diploma students and the work that we do.
Please note as the College building is closed, we can’t answers phone calls, for any queries please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Clay College, offers a skills-based, full-time ceramics course taught by potters who make a living through ceramics, something unique in the UK. We run a two-year full-time Diploma course for 14 students, with each year consisting of three 15-week terms.
The emphasis is on core skills and the use of materials. Students are taught all aspects of design, throwing, glazing, kiln building and firing, alongside traditional hand building and decoration techniques. This is augmented by modules focusing on business and marketing which will offer students the opportunity to become self-sufficient, developing their own business model to suit their work and sufficiently skilled to join a work force in a production pottery.
Alongside the Diploma Course, we run wide range of other part-time courses, evening courses and Masterclasses delivered by highly experienced and internationally renowned potters. We offer something suitable whatever the level of ability.
