Each poster includes step-by-step photographs to show placement of hands as well as cut forms to show cross sections.  Examples of finished work by leading ceramists are also shown.

Each poster is printed on heavy cardstock with holes for hanging and a protective UV coating, and the posters are packaged in a plastic bag for convenient storage and transporting to classrooms.  They can be mounted on the wall for class reference or used individually.

Walker Ceramics has developed these projects specifically for schools.  We have aimed to provide an approach that allows the projects to be adapted to all year levels.  Each project is bound and uses the same easy to follow format.
A project includes:-

  • a brief description of the project theme.
  • an outline of the techniques to be used.
  • the aims of the project.
  • the assessable objectives.
  • a list of materials & equipment required.
  • a lesson timeline using the standard 40 minute lesson allowance.
  • preparation notes for the teacher.
  • detailed lesson and construction notes.
  • firing instructions.
  • health and safety notes.
  • a glossary of terms.
  • provision for teacher’s notes.
  • a prepared assessment form.

These projects may be adapted to suit all year levels and the series provides a solid basis for the school program as they meet the national curriculum criteria. We invite feedback from teachers and photographs of exceptional work which may be included on our web site, acknowledging the school teacher and student.
