Learn Ceramics from a Master Ceramicist

Posted on: 30th January 2015


Starting Monday 2ND FEBRUARY 2015 6-9pm

The Playhouse in partnership with the NorthWest regional College are excited to announce a new course for beginners in ceramics commencing in February. A series of 10 workshops will offer the opportunity to learn from internationally renowned ceramicist Brian Magee towards an Open College Network accreditation at level 1.

Edel Murphy, Education Programming Officer at the Playhouse, commented "This is a fantastic opportunity for those new to ceramics to learn from one our local artists with an international profile. This is a beginner's course from which we hope to unearth and nurture new talent in ceramic crafts."

Brian was smitten by clay at first touch, because as a material he found it so expressive and responsive. He's been working from his Studio at his home at the foot of Dooish Hill near Raphoe since 1997 and working in clay since 1978.

The ceramics he makes are all entirely handmade, glazed and fired in his home built gas kiln using techniques which have stood the test of time. The work is both functional and sculptural. Originally from Derry, he studied in Birmingham Art College. He aspires to make work that retains some link to all art and all humanity, drawing on as inspiration, the natural beauty and history of Donegal and the connections we make between culture, life, music and community. Enrol today by emailing edel@derryplayhouse.co.uk or contact the Playhouse on 028 71 268 027.

Start date Monday 2nd February.

For full 10 sessions: Concession rate £45 Full Cost £60
