About the event

Learn the basics on the pottery wheel from preparing clay, learning to center and glazing your pieces. This is a structured 6-week course, specifically targeted at learning at your pace, clay is not a medium to be rushed it takes time and lots of practice.  You will focus on correct skill development, this class is not about the quantity of pieces you come out with, we focus on quality and learning. 

Return students will be finessing and extending their skills and will be given direction to extend on skills.

The initial 6 week block will focus on cylinders, cups/handles and bowls.

FIRING is not included, Bisque & glaze firing is charged at $12 per Kg on pickup of work.

New students will be focusing on 

Week 1 - May  2 -  Practice, practice, practice.  We do not keep anything made from this class.

Week 2 - May 9 - Cylinders and more cylinders, because we want to get it right.

Week 3 - May 16- Throwing to form, cups and tumblers

Week 4 - May 23- Turning feet and adding handles

Week 5 - May 30 -  Finishing feet, handles and adding surface decoration

Week 6 - June 6 - Glazing

Returning Student's projects will extend in the following projects

Flatware

Lidded Vessels

Larger bowls/vessels/flatware

Teapots

You will pick 6-8 pieces per class to glaze and fire, we are conscious of our resources and will recycle clay pieces that dont make the cut, so you will need to choose.

With only 8 students per class it is perfect to hone your skills and get the basics right. 

PLEASE BOOK WISELY!  I will be unable to refund any cancellations, you can transfer your ticket to a friend.  To avoid disappointment please do not ask for a refund, please understand that a facilitator is being paid with other outgoings and numbers (your booked spot) is required to keep my little business afloat.

Thanks for understanding.
