6 Week Course - Potters Wheel - All Levels
JUNE - JULY
Tuesdays 11th June - 16th July, 6.30pm-8.30pm, taught by Sheenie
Wednesdays 12th June - 17th July, 6.30pm-8.30pm, taught by Pascal
On this course, beginners will learn the fundamental skills of throwing on the potters wheel: wedging, throwing, trimming, and glazing. Those who have already taken beginner classes will be offered help and advice by the tutor after the initial class demonstration.
Throwing successfully takes time and practice, and the focus of this course is on learning and improving, not necessarily about the outcome of a finished pot. You will have access to your own wheel in each session.
Please bring a towel, and apron.
Please ensure that you have short nails and long hair tied back for throwing, and any jewellery should be removed from your hands and wrists.
Please ensure that you can attend all sessions as we cannot guarantee space to catch up a session in other classes.
The course includes all materials and firing for up to £15 worth of fired pots (eg a coffee cup works out at £2). Any extra work will be charged based on size.
We will email you when your work is ready to collect after a few weeks, and you can come and collect your pots during class times. We keep work for 2 months after emailing, after which we have to dispose of the work as we have limited space to store work.
