If you are new to clay this course will introduce you to making pots on a wheel - throwing, and hand-building pots. If you already have some experience this course will enable you to practice what you already know and extend your knowledge.
The day will consist of demonstrations of throwing on the wheel and hand building techniques by Pat Thompson with plenty of time for practice and coaching throughout the day. Class size will be up to 10 people.
There will be tea and coffee breaks with a delicious lunch provided. (Please inform us of any dietary requirements)
This course is really for anyone, those entirely new to throwing as well as those with experience. You can go along at your own pace once you've seen demonstrations. Everyone can have a go and achieve something they are proud of, whilst exploring a new and satisfying hobby and a known relaxant and stress-busting activity.
At the end of the day you will select 4 of your best pots to be left at CUP for firing and glazing. Extra items may be fired and collected at £6.50 per kilo.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
Delicious lunch and refreshments. 4 pots may be glazed and fired on site.
