Pottery Throwing Workshop

Pottery Throwing Workshop

This is an intensive class for students to workshop their throwing skills. They will be able to work at their own level while being guided to hone and then extend their skills.

On day one and part of day 2 the focus will be on throwing until there is a set of items that can go through to day 2 for turning. The following Sunday (day 3) the items will be glazed together.

Sessions will include health and safety, basics on kiln firing, recycling your clay, colour and glaze, decorating and developing your own unique style. 

In each term during the year there will be a focus on confidently achieving either a cyclinder or bowl which in turn can lead on to the many varied shapes that can be achieved on the pottery wheel.

This course consists of one weekend Saturday and Sunday 10 - 4pm and the following Sunday 2-4pm.

The course fee does not include any materials, clay, glaze or firing.
