DATES

Saturday and Sunday 17th and 18th August, 10am-4pm

 

This 2-day course is suitable for complete beginners and is a great way to learn about all the basic stages of pottery production on the wheel

Day 1 //all about learning to prepare and centre clay, pulling walls and making cylinders and bowls.  

Day 2 // Your pots will have firmed up overnight and you will learn how to trim your work on the wheel. You will decorate your work with coloured slips, which will be fired and transparent-glazed at a later date.

 

Please bring a packed lunch, light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

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 offer 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 on Sundays between 10am and 4pm. We keep work for 2 months after emailing, after which we have to dispose of the work as we have limited storage space.

Please ensure that you can attend all sessions as we cannot offer space to catch up a session in other classes.
