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
