Additional information

Please bring an apron or an old shirt. A sketchbook is useful but not essential. Tools are provided but some students prefer to use their own.

Clay used will be charged at £2.00 per kilo before firing. Charges will be in multiples of 500gm therefore there will be a minimum charge of 500gm (£1.00).

The college does not fire clay purchased outside of the college; therefore, you should not bring in your own clay.

We make every attempt to purchase clay at the lowest prices for the best quality however we have no control over these costs and prices will be subject to market changes.
