About the Course

This course covers all skills from handbuilding and wheelthrowing, to surface decoration and glazing, and is suitable either for beginners or intermediate level makers. The course is structured so that each week focuses on a different technique, but we also place a lot of emphasis on time for practice and experimenting with clay. We hope that our students come away feeling like they have learnt some new skills, had fun, and hopefully made some new friends too. 

The pace of the course is entirely down to you - if you are interested in a focused learning environment in which to advance your skills and learn some new techniques, then we can provide this for you through our professional and skilled team of teachers. Our classes can also be a great opportunity to meet new people, relax, drink tea, and indulge in some meditative making surrounded by plants and positive energy.

About the Teacher

Chris Pavlov is a Birmingham-based maker and designer, specialising in minimal, hand thrown functional pieces. His background in design greatly influences his teaching technique, and he approaches his class with a great deal of care and consideration. Chris hopes for his students to make beautiful work, but also to learn a thoughtful and considered approach to ceramics that moves beyond the act of making to consider the wider impact of the craft.

‘Craft is my means of navigating the world, a way of life, a source of meaning. My practice focuses on marrying aesthetically pleasing forms with clearly defined functionality. I used to think that it was the element of solitude that drew me to the process of making with clay but I've come to realise that, in fact, it's the safe space you can create for yourself and other people to have a conversation in’.

Materials

We will provide all materials throughout the course. All of our students use our buff stoneware clay, and have access to a full range of tools, slips, moulds, and use of our SkandiHus glazes, which are mixed in-house and used by Stine for her own work.

See our range of glazes available.

What to Bring

We will send you our student handbook prior to the start of the course, with all the information that you need to know. You are welcome to bring your own apron, or you can purchase a SkandiHus apron here. Please enter code ‘COLLECTMYAPRON’ at checkout if you would like to avoid delivery fees and collect the apron in your first class.

What if I miss a class?

It is not a problem at all to miss a class or two throughout the twelve week period. We ask that all students try their best to attend the first two sessions, as these are difficult to catch up on if missed, but we understand that you may have other commitments throughout the twelve weeks, and your teacher will ensure that you are caught up on everything that you have missed when you return. Please note that we cannot accommodate students making up missed classes at other times, nor can we allow students to swap their classes once the course has started, because our classes always sell out.

Where

This class is taught at our beautiful studio in Hackney, 90 De Beauvoir Road, London, N1 4EN.

Please note that we have a 28 day no refund policy and missed classes can not be made up in different classes so please make sure that you are able to attend all classes before booking. Thank you.
