Course information

Continuing Clay classes are perfect for people who have some clay skills and are developing their own style and studio practice. Bring along your ideas and our talented teachers will be able to help you bring them to life. Some continuing classes offer extra support for people with disabilities. All our Continuing Clay teachers are experienced potters and are skilled at teaching both wheelthrowing and handbuilding techniques. Teachers may focus on a particular theme or technique for the term that reflects the interests of students in the class

About the artist

With a background in community-work around Canberra, Fran Romano has always had a passion for clay. Since indulging that passion more fully and enrolling at ANU School of Art in 2011, Fran has made clay central to her life.  In her own art practice she explores ideas of decay, memory and nostalgia through use of layering and surface decoration as well as mixed-media installations. Her production arm, FRATTEMPO, embraces one-off decorative homewares and vessels embracing the same themes.
As a trained social worker, Fran brings a unique perspective to her teaching and a student-centred approach.  She feels that the process is just as important as the outcome and aims to make her classes inclusive and friendly.
Currently teaching children’s classes at the Canberra Potters, she looks forward to taking her own adult’s classes in the future.
