Beginners Wheel-throwing - 4 weeks
If you've ever wanted to try making some pottery on the wheel, this is the time with our 4-week beginner pottery wheel-throwing classes. Each class is 2.5 hours and no experience is required.
Your tutor will demonstrate how to throw some simple shapes on the pottery wheel, including clay preparation, centring clay on the wheel and shaping your pot. You'll also learn to trim and turn your best pots, have them bisque fired, pieces ready for glazing and their final firing, to pick up later.
This class is for anyone 12 years or older and will be limited to 5 students per class, so you'll get the attention you need.
You'll be able to use studio tools and 6 kilos of stoneware clay to make your pieces and be able to fire your best 6 pieces. You can purchase more clay at $28 a bag. Additional fees apply if you'd like your own pottery tool starter kit.
Students just need to bring an old shirt/or an apron, an old towel, large plastic bags and wear closed-in shoes. We recommend relaxed fit pants/trousers for wheel throwing.
Classes will be held on Thursdays and you must be available on those days (no makeup classes).
