Course Length: 3 X 3 hour sessions
5 star rating, 1 reviewers.
The course runs over three sessions, each 3 hours long and the number of students will be limited to a maximum of 5.
For the first session you will learn to throw pots on the potter's wheel, guided by a highly qualified potter/teacher who will demonstrate each stage of the process and carefully support you according to your level of ability. In the second session, you will trim the bases of your thrown pots, maybe add a handle and apply some slip decoration. In the third session, after the work has been bisque fired, you will glaze your pots ready for their second firing and if there is some extra time you can have a little extra practice time on the wheel.
The course is designed to give you an introductory experience of learning the craft of wheel-thrown pottery. It is a process which takes practice to master skilfully and at the end of this course will achieve a grounding in that process. You will also go away with a handful of unique pots and maybe even a mug for your morning cuppa.
What's included in the price?
All materials and firing costs are covered by the fee. Tools are provided but would recommend that students bring an apron and an old bath towel.
