Free adult beginners ceramics classes
MBC Arts Wellbeing is very pleased to announce our latest round of FREE adult beginners ceramics courses, delivered right in the heart of Sunderland city centre. What happens on the course? Learn a range of ceramic hand building techniques including coiling, slab, pinch pots and sculpting to create your very own pieces of ceramic artwork. Using these skills you will learn how to create a range of pieces including ceramic vessels you can use at home. There is even scope on the courses to fuse sea glass into your creations to make an extra special piece of work When are courses taking place? All courses are 7 sessions long, 3 hours per session. Courses will take place on: Wednesday, 20th March 2019: 6pm - 9pm: 10 places Friday, 22nd March 2019, 10am - 1pm: 10 places Friday, 22nd March, 2pm - 5pm: 10 places It\'s free? Yes - these courses are funded, meaning we can work with adults at no cost on this course. All materials, equipment and tools are provided, just come along ready to learn something new and get creative. Our free courses are always over-subscribed and we never have enough places for everyone who wants to come along and sign up. Unfortunately we have had a run of non-attendees recently, people who have taken a place but then not come, meaning someone else who would have taken their place has missed out. Due to recent non-attendance on our free courses we have introduced a £10 refundable deposit scheme. This is refunded to you when you come along to session one of the course. If you do not attend then the £10 deposit will go into our donations box for our \'Brew\' sessions, helping us offer more free courses to others in the community. Where are sessions taking place? Sessions will be held at 31 Norfolk St, Sunderland, SR1 1EE. The nearest Metro stop is Sunderland Central, nearest bus station is Park Lane, and nearest car park is Nile Street car park directly behind our site. We are sorry but we have no on site customer parking. Who is this course for? To take part in this course you must live in Sunderland, be over 19 and be either retired, unemployed or working less than 15 hours per week. This course is for people who have not taken part on one of our free courses before, or for those who have not taken part on a course with us in the last 2 years. Sounds great! How do I sign up? Send us a direct message on our Facebook page - search MBC Arts Wellbeing CIC on Facebook. Start your message with the word CLAY, and provide a contact telephone number and the course date you would like to take part in. We will then call you to take payment of your £10 refundable deposit securely and over the phone. Deposit refunds / cancellations: Deposits will be refunded back to your bank account when you turn up to session one of the course to enrol. We need a minimum of 7 days\' notice for cancellations in order for you to receive a refund of your full deposit. Cancellations received after this time will not be eligible for deposit refund.
