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. You will have instruction from 2 experienced facilitators for the the first 2 classes to get everyone going, the 4 remaing classes will be with just one facilitator. Facilitator TBC.

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

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

ALL MATERIALS AND FIRING INCLUDED.

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