Autumn nights are drawing in and winter approaches, bringing the opportunity to spend more time being creative, to expand your skills, develop your practice or learn something new. We hope you will be inspired by a new pottery course Making and decorating dynamic expressive slipware with Dylan Bowen, from 13-17 November, or perhaps another subject, on offer at West Dean College, between October 2016 and March 2017. When you attend a course, you can also stay with us, in the beautiful, historic West Dean House, set 100 acres of glorious Gardens and Parkland in the heart of the South Downs National Park in West Sussex.
Here are details of the Making and decorating dynamic expressive slipware which still has places available. You will find details, costs and how to book, when you follow this link click here
Making and decorating dynamic, expressive slipware, Dylan Bowen, 13-17 November NEW COURSE Intermediate/Advanced
With an emphasis on action and spontaneity, learn and develop new approaches to making and decorating slipware. Dylan will demonstrate his own making and decorating techniques, including sliced plates and sculptural forms, wheel thrown platters and carved solid shapes. From these you can then pursue new shapes and ideas and learn to embrace fresh directions combining slip and clay in truly dynamic ways.

We look forward to welcoming you.
