Ceramics classes are a great way to have fun and meet new people while being creative and learning new skills.
They are run by me, Ayelet Lalor, in my studio. I'm a figurative sculptor with an MA in ceramics, and will share a whole host of knowledge with you, you just have to ask.
The classes are designed for beginners to advanced levels of skill, and would also suit those working on their portfolio.
With small groups of no more than 10 people, you will get lots of one to one attention while learning different clay hand-building techniques and decorative methods.
Classes start every 6 weeks
Tuesday mornings 11-1.30 pm
Wednesday evenings 6.30- 9 pm (Check upcoming meetups for next available dates)
€150 for 6 weeks, incl most materials. (Check upcoming meetups for details.
Please note that classes are not transferable.)
What you'll do.... The first two weeks will concentrate on learning hand-building techniques, as well as some decorative slip painting and glazing.
By week three you are encouraged to start your own piece, creating whatever you wish, with help and guidence from me. As you are encouraged to create whatever you want, there is no guarantee that your piece will be finished within the six weeks, so keep it small. However, let that stand in your way as you are welcome to continue.
Exhibition... Some of my students have been coming here continuously for over 3 years, and every summer I host a students exhibition for everyone who has taken a class in the past year to get a chance to show their work.
Past, present and future students, plus family and friends are invited to enjoy a glass of wine and see what goes on in the classes.
I can also run weekend workshops or classes on other days if there is a group request.
