In this six week course (one class per week) you will get a refresher on the fundamentals of wheel throwing while adding to your skill set. In this course you will learn the skills to create taller and bigger forms, such as cylinders, bowls and flatware. You will learn how to create forms with finesse, fine tune your trimming/turning and how to create and attach handles. 

You will gain practice in a range of decorative techniques, including underglaze colours, glaze and tissue transfers. At the completion of the course you will have your own glazed forms to take home and use. This course is ideal for those with some basic wheel throwing experience. 

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.
