Learn the age-old technique of forming pots on the wheel with an experienced tutor. In this six week course (one class per week) you will learn the fundamental skills of wheel throwing. This will include centring clay on the wheel, throwing cylinder and bowl forms, and turning. You will also be introduced to a range of decorative techniques, including underglaze colours, glaze and tissue transfers. At the completion of the course you will have your own glazed pots and bowls to take home and use. This course is ideal for beginners.
The cost of this course includes one bag of clay (buff stoneware), use of wheel and tools, firing, and materials for decorating and glazing. Our pottery supply shop stocks a wide variety of products you may wish to explore further and is open during business hours. This course will have a maximum of 10 students.
