About the event

Learn the basics on the pottery wheel from preparing clay, learning to center and finishing your piece. This is a structured 6 week course, specifically targeted at the absolute beginner. The focus for this class is skill development and gaining practice in a step by step approach. With only 8 students per class it is perfect to hone your skills and get the basics right. This class runs for 6 weeks, per class with all clay, firing and glaze is included.

For returning students your fee includes one bag of clay to start you off and $50 worth of firing, anything extra will be charged accordingly. Now that you have the basics, Kirsty will extend your current skills around making handled cups, bowls and plates, plenty to learn!

For Newbies, your fabulous facilitator for this course is Kirsty Manger of yumDESIGN Ceramics works from her home studio in Jan Juc, Victoria where she moved to in the year 2000 and began her “relationship” with clay.

Her work is made using various hand building techniques including coil building, slip casting and wheel forming.

Kirsty most enjoys “project” based pieces and commissions including public art, community art, tableware and more recently architectural ceramic tile murals, pendant lighting and basins.

$540 all inclusive for new participants

So if you want to throw like a pro don't miss this class!
