Ceramics: Wheel throwing for Beginners Thurs AM

Learn the fundamentals of clay work in this 6-week Thursday morning course for beginners and continuing students

Produced by the City of Sydney

Bookings open 18 September 2019

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

Throughout this 6-week morning 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 foundation 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.

Please note: Any large pieces must be kept within 25cm cubed. No works made off-site/outside class will be fired.

Intimate class size: maximum 10 students.
Level: designed for beginner level students.
Wear: comfortable clothing and enclosed shoes.
Bring: please bring your own apron and towel.
