A Christmas Experience - Ceramics

What's the course about?

Our Creative Christmas courses are for anyone looking to try something new. Join us, try your hands at something new, make a glass bowl, create an abstract piece of art or throw a shape.

Our courses have been designed for you to be creative. Make something useful, ornamental or abstract. If you don’t like it, give it to someone as a gift. If you love it, save it for yourself. All courses include materials, expert tuition and the chance to use our amazing facilities.

What will I study?

Learner hours: 5

This two night course is ideal for those who want to start experimenting with clay. During our two sessions you will experiment with coiling, slab building and pinching. You can make a bowl, a dish or a vase, the choice is yours.

Your work will be fired in our kilns ready for glazing in the colours and design of your choice. Collection will be 2 weeks after the final course date to allow time for your piece to dry and be fired.

Why not try our Glass Art Christmas Experience as well, which runs in between these two ceramics course dates.

Booking deadlines

Bookings for all Creative Arts Short Courses will be reviewed two weeks before the start date of each course. This will allow the Short Course team to determine whether a course has met the minimum number of students needed for the class to run. If a class has failed to recruit, the class will be re-scheduled and you will be informed. Where relevant you will be offered an alternative class. If the course has met minimum numbers, bookings will stay open to the course start date or until it has met maximum numbers.

We encourage you to book early before the deadline to avoid disappointment.

Bookings for all short courses need to be made online through the Universities’ online booking system, before a course commences. You cannot enroll or attend a class on the day the course starts, without prior arrangement.


If for any reason you change your mind about joining us after you have accepted the offer, you have a legal right to cancel your contract to study with us within 14 days. This cancellation period therefore ends at the end of 14 days after the day on which you accepted our offer. Find further details of our cancellation terms here.
