This four week evening course will run on Wednesdays 6:00-8:30pm, 5 -26 June.

​​​​​​​Explore the art of ceramic throwing on the wheel. You will be guided through the process and techniques of creating a pot on the wheel, with three different types of pottery wheels to practice on.

You will experiment with trimming, the process of cutting away excess clay to create a smoother, cleaner finish, and with foot rings and handles to take your pieces to the next level. At the end of the course, you can decorate your favourite pieces which will be fired and glazed in our ceramic studio. Pieces will be glazed and fired through our kiln, and ready to collect three weeks from the end of the course.

Who is the workshop for?

This course is suitable for adults who are complete beginners or for those who wish to refresh their previous knowledge. You don’t need to feel confident in clay to start this course as all aspects of the medium are covered.

Do I need to bring anything?

All equipment and tools will be provided for you as well materials to explore all processes. We recommend wearing old clothes or bringing an apron in case you get a bit messy! If you have long hair we recommend tying it back.
