Introduction to Clay (hand-building & wheel) - 4 weeks - starts Wednesday, 3 November
You can now enjoy making your own clay projects in Drummoyne. This is a 4-week class (12 years +) that will be taught by an experienced Ceramics Teacher.
Classes are for beginners with a limit of 5 participants only so you'll get lots of attention.
You'll get to start off with clay hand-building, as well as have a try on the pottery wheel. You'll learn various techniques including pinch pots, coil building and working with slabs and moulds. You'll also acquire skills in decoration, carving and glazing. Over the 4 weeks, you'll be able to make a range of pieces, have them bisque fired and glazed, ready for the final firing. You will then be able to pick them up at an arranged time a few weeks later.
You will receive 6 kg of clay to start with and can purchase more if needed at $28 a bag. Additional fees apply if you'd like your own tool starter kit.
There will be a total of 4 classes to attend over four weeks. Each session is 2.5 hours and you must be available for these times and dates:
- 7 - 9:30 pm
- Wed 3, 10,17 & 24 November
Your tutor will be Leila Khazma. Some students' work is pictured.
