On this course you will learn the fundamental skills of throwing on the potters wheel: wedging, throwing, trimming, and slip decoration.
Throwing successfully takes time and practice, and the focus of this course is not necessarily about the outcome of a finished pot.
WEEK 1: Wedging, Centering, opening, and pulling
WEEK 2: Practice pulling cylinders, troubleshooting
WEEK 3: Variations on the basic cylinder and throwing a bowl
WEEK 4: Trimming and intro to slip decoration
WEEK 5: Personal practice with tutor support.
WEEK 6: Completion of all work to date
You will have access to your own wheel in each session.
Please bring a towel, and apron.
Please ensure that you have short nails for throwing and any jewellery should be removed from your hands and wrists.
The course includes all materials and firing for up to 3kg of finished work. Any extra work will be charged at £3 per kg. Fired work will be available to collect the following term, during class times. Any work which has not been collected by the end of the following term will be disposed of.
