About Taster Course - Hand-building with Clay with Adam Gandy

This taster introduces hand-building techniques for pinch-pots, slab-building and coil-building as a basis for a unique vessel or sculpture. All sculptures and vessels produced will remain at ESW until dry and then be bisque fired after which you can take them away.

After graduating Emily Carr University, Adam took employment fabricating sculpture and sets for senior Artists in Vancouver and USA. In 2013, he left Canada for Germany, in order to work at the Haus der Kunst Museum assisting visiting artists with sculpture, installation and video works for exhibition. Since moving to Glasgow Adam has been making work and sharing his expertise as a tutor in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
