The introductory course is for those who have never done pottery before and my idea for the class is to show you all the basic making methods in one session. So we start with a simple pinch pot made from a ball of clay, we then roll the clay into coils and add the coils to the pinch pot making a bowl. We then roll out the clay into slabs and make a simple box form, this teaches you how to get even thicknesses of clay and how to join slabs of clay together using the score and slip method. I then demonstrate how to throw a pot on the potters wheel which I explain is the mechanical way of making the same bowl shape as your pinch pot, you can then have a go at throwing on the potters wheel while I guide you through the process. Once you have done your introductory course and you enjoyed it you can come along to weekly classes
