How it works:

This 5 week course focuses on improving your basic throwing skills, and will cover throwing taller pots, shaping techniques, and trimming. 

If you have completed a beginner course and are able to throw a cylinder, you are ready for this course! More advanced potters are welcome to carry out their own projects, and proficient handbuilders are welcome to use the handbuilding facilities too.

A 6kg bag of clay is included, along with firings. Extra clay can be bought at £18 per 6kg bag.

The course does not include a glazing session. When your pots have been bisque fired you can book onto one of our regular glazing classes.

Week 1: Straight sided cylinders

Week 2: throwing taller cylinders

Week 3: shaping by collaring and bellying out

Week 4: Bowls

Week 5: Trimming
