About this course

Immerse yourself in the Barrett-Danes family's tradition in ceramics as you learn how to create vivid and expressive animal forms using a range of pottery techniques. First of all, spend time studying the unique characteristics of each animal, then consider overall balance and proportion. You will complete at least two animal sculptures, wall-mounted heads or headed pots.
