New Ceramics Short Courses

6 June - 4 July 2024

7:00pm - 8:30pm


Earthenware Beakers course

The Museum of Royal Worcester is known for its spectacular collection of porcelain and bone china but most workers making these fine objects would have used earthenware vessels at home. Starting with two tankards, we will explore hand-building and decorating techniques using earthenware clays that have been the basis of practical ceramics in these islands since the Bronze Age.

Over 5 weeks you will gain skills and be supported to experiment and discover forming and decorating techniques in this tactile, local and everyday clay material, working towards making a pair of beakers you will be able to use daily at home.

Course leader Rupert Brakspear has more than thirty years of ceramic practice and a background in archaeology, education and sustainable development.

Suitable for all abilities.

The course will run over 5 weeks, on Thursday evenings 7:00pm – 8:00pm

All your materials are included, plus tea and coffee on Royal Worcester china during the session – so all you have to do is turn up. Please wear covered shoes and old clothes/an apron that you don’t mind getting clay on.

£125.00 for the full course.
