Slip Sliding Away with Dylan Bowen

During this course, students will have the opportunity to create and decorate work using a range of handbuilding and slip decorating techniques. The emphasis will be on simplicity, on a loose and dynamic approach to earthenware, and on leaving things alone, loosening up and developing through making. The four days will be divided into ‘making’ and ‘decorating’ days. Dylan will introduce simple techniques everyday as starting points for the days work, and the students will have then be able to take these methods and adapt and develop them in their own directions. We will use old and new methods with clay and slip to focus on the making process rather than concentrating on the finished pieces. We will explore different making processes, handbuilding, carving, slicing and cutting the clay. We will use slip trailers, brushes, sgraffitto: any techniques that are there to be used. Suitable for all abilities. Food and drink On this course, lunch will be provided on Tuesday-Friday. These communal meals are a vital part of the learning experience and we strongly recommend you attend them. Tea and coffee will be available throughout the course. Venue: Studio 45 Price: £465 non-residential / £685 residential

A Talk with Mark Gatiss

You can join us in socially-distanced seating in the Great Hall for this event, or watch along online (look for the appropriate option at checkout). Registration will close and online talk ticket holders will receive a link to join the talk 24 hours before the event start time. What makes a good ghost story? Find out on this thrilling evening with the man who describes himself on social media as ‘actor, writer, strangler, Mark Gatiss. The bond between Christmas and the spooky – perhaps most embodied by the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol – is the staple of many much-loved stories. In this talk, Mark will share his own and his favourite tales as he reads from ghost stories looking at the contrast between jollity and terror; the invitation of a spectre to the feast; the tracing of the anxiety within the festivity. Mark has been writing ghoulish tales since his childhood, and is best known for his acting and writing credits on The Vesuvius Club, the BBC’s Sherlock and Dracula adaptations, and The League of Gentlemen. Venue: Great Hall Price: £10 or Online free by donation - check their website for more information
