An exciting new pottery course is being offered at the National Craft and Design Centre  (the hub) in Sleaford in September.

This course will enable students to design and create decorative pottery items including tiles, clock faces, hanging items and wall art. Students will develop a range of decorating techniques to texture and colour their work.

The course has been developed and will be taught by WEA tutor Jane Howlett. Jane has run the very successful pottery course at Ancaster Day Centre in Lincoln, which you can read all about by clicking on the link below here

The Sleaford hub is an excellent venue, with full disabled access, plenty of public displays and exhibitions and good transport links to the rest of the county.
