Event Details

On this practical ceramics course students further explore already learned key skills of wheel throwing. Explore how the symmetry of the wheel thrown pot can be altered to enhance rims and compositions within sets of pots. Learn how pots can be cut and reassembled into minimal as well as more complex shapes. All work will be decorated using a variety of coloured glazes.

This popular course runs on Wednesday evenings and lasts for 10 weeks.

Late starts are available - please, enquire.

What will I learn?

  • By the end of the course, you will be able to
  • Identify a range of clays
  • Understand basic clay/glaze technology.
  • Further develop previously learned wheel throwing skills.
  • Aim to increase the size and sophistication of your pottery.
  • Explore thrown and altered pottery forms.
  • Face technical challenges and find practical and creative solutions through practice.

What are the entry requirements?

There are no formal entry requirements. Ideally, you will have completed our beginner course or have a little experience of using a wheel. Throwing is not as easy as it looks on TV!

Is this the right course for me?

You need to be 19 or over. This course is suitable for you if you want to:

  • Further develop practical as well as design skills.
  • Learn/improve a range of techniques needed to make utilitarian or decorative ceramic objects on the potter’s wheel.
  • Make functional/decorative pottery.

Your teacher will assess your skills during a short practical exercise to make sure this is the right class for you. 


What can I do after this course?
Our learners go on to use their skills in their lives in many different ways; some go on to a  more advanced course or sell their work and develop a small business. Others use their skills to find work or to go up the career ladder. Some just enjoy being creative, active and sociable.  
If you need business skills, find out about our passion to profit courses.
