This course is suitable for complete beginners and as a refresher course for those who have tried throwing before. On this 3-session introduction course, participants will learn the techniques of pottery, covering the process from clay preparation, throwing, trimming to glazing.
Session 1 - Preparation of clay, centering, opening, and pulling walls, practice for making cylindrical pots and bowls (3-4 hours)
Session 2 - Trimming the bases of your pots, adding handles, and using tools and coloured clay slips for surface decoration. (3 hours)
Session 3 - Glazing and introduction to firing (3 hours *by appointment)
This course includes 3kg of clay per participant. All the clay will have to be thrown on the first day so they’ll be dry enough for trimming on day 2.
