Course fully booked for now
Description

This is an introductory course to deliver the basics of wheel work and to get you started on your throwing career! Throughout the five weeks you will be working towards being able to center clay on the wheel, then learning to throw bowls (fit to use afterwards!) while also ‘turning’ pots (carving and shaping the bases when they are semi-dry). We’ll also cover techniques in slip application to decorate your work. The final fifth class will be spent throwing eggcups, which are made and finished in one go on the wheel. The finished, turned and decorated pots will be bisque-fired, coated in transparent glaze and then glaze-fired before being ready for collection.

This course is fully focused on techniques of the potter’s wheel.

There are a maximum of 7 students per course ensuring that everyone gets a nice bit of attention while learning how to throw pots!

Due to the level of concentration and hand-eye coordination that is required to master the wheel,  these courses are for people aged 16 and over.

Thursday’s from 4 to 6pm.

Lessons run for 2 hours per week for 5 weeks.

Cost includes all materials, firings, etc. for work made during the class times.
