The two day courses were run one week apart. This was to allow for making and then decorating of the finished work.

The students learnt a range of techniques i.e. manipulating the clay, mark marking and using other everyday items to create texture.

The inspiration for the workshop was the work of Kate Malone, from the Great Pottery Throw Down. This was to show how Kate applies different items to the surface of a pot, with other ceramicists images used to demonstrate mark making into the clay.

Mr Dimbleby gave demonstrations using rolled out flat pieces of clay, which were then decorated using a variety of techniques. This gave the students a visual reference point for further ideas.

Each student rolled out their own individual tiles ready to work on. This enabled them to experiment with mark making on a number of surfaces, prior to making their final piece.

We have been conducting virtual tours, meetings and online lesson experiences for parents and children considering St. Dominic’s Priory School for their children and have places available across a number of year groups for September 2020.

We have received an unprecedented number of admissions in Year 9 for September 2020 and as a result have added an additional form class to accommodate. As a result we now have places available for Year 9 from September 2020.
