For some, throwing clay on the potter’s wheel is addictive. If you’re one of those people, you’ve come to the right place.
Our tutor will provide instruction for experienced students wanting to master wheel-throwing techniques. They’ll also teach advanced skills in hand building so you can refine and finish pots to an advanced standard.
Throughout this 7-week course, you’ll learn how to identify a conceptual basis for your work so you can achieve specific design and aesthetic outcomes. The application and finishing of glazes will also play an integral part in the course.
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 intermediate level students.
Wear: comfortable clothing (trousers recommended).
Bring: please bring your own apron and towel – all materials provided.
Exhausted clay is reclaimed and recycled for reuse in our classes.
