Ceramics: Wheel throwing for beginners Fri PM

Learn the fundamentals of clay work in this 8-week Friday afternoon course for beginners and continuing students

Produced by the City of Sydney

Bookings open 13 March 2019

Ceramics is one of the most ancient industries on the planet and a complex craft to master.

Throughout this 8-week afternoon course, you’ll receive hands on instruction from our tutor who will provide a blend of important technical advice with a passion for the making, using and appreciation of ceramic forms.

Designed to fast track your learning so you can engage in further ceramics practice, the focus will be on the foundational processes of ceramic art as opposed to creating a finished product. However you will produce a small body of work for applying surface treatment. At the end of the course, you’ll have gained a distinct advantage that will put you on a pathway towards further learning.

Full instruction is provided on materials, products, tools, equipment and studio procedures.

Following the end of the course, your fired work will be available for collection so you can show family and friends your creations.

Intimate class size: maximum 10 students. Each student will have their own wheel.
Level: designed for beginner level students.
Wear: comfortable clothing (trousers recommended) and enclosed shoes.
Bring: please bring your own apron and towel – all materials provided.

Exhausted clay is reclaimed and recycled for reuse in our classes.
