Begin making beautiful ceramics, even if you’ve never attempted pottery before, following detailed information about:

  • Different types and constituencies of clay – including earthenware, stoneware, porcelain, and raku
  • Forming methods – including pinching, coiling, slabbing, press molding, throwing, and trimming
  • Adding texture and patterns – with techniques such as sgraffito, stamping, inlaying, and burnishing
  • Painting and printing – using slip, banding and combing, resists, and underglazes
  • Glazes and post-firing techniques – including salt and soda glazes, lusters, and metal leaf
  • Essential technical resources – such as glaze recipes, types of kilns and firings, and health and safety tips
