A two day intensive throwing course where we will cover all the basics of working on the potters wheel; from clay preparation to decoration.

About this event

Our two day weekend pottery course for beginners is aimed at those with little to no experience of working on the potters’ wheel. During the course we will cover the basics of throwing. Cover the two main shapes created on the potters wheel: bowls and cylinders.

Each student will have access to an electric power wheel and will be working with red earthenware clay. The studio also has a treadle kick-wheel available for use if any students would prefer to learn on the kick-wheel.

We will also cover handling and turning techniques to take our cylinders and bowls to completed pots you can use at home. After we have finished the making of our work we will be decorating with coloured slips or different colour.

Our aim is that every student will leave the second day with a solid understanding and foundation for the throwing process upon which they can build their pottery practice. As well as having an understanding of how to handle and turn pots and the use of slip.

From the course students will be able to keep a selection of their work that will be glazed and fired that can be collected from the studio 3 weeks after the course at the cost of £3 per item.

The cost of the course will include a vegetarian lunch on both days and morning and afternoon refreshments.
