This course is ideal for beginners and those wanting a refresh to get back into working on the wheel.
Duration: 3 hrs
When: Saturday 10:00 – 13:00
Course overview: On this course you will learn how to ‘throw’ clay to make basic pot forms such as cylinders and bowls. You will be introduced to throwing techniques and be able to spend the morning making pots and honing your skills. The session is partly group taught and then moves towards individual tuition for the last hour to help you perfect your technique. Due to the short nature of the course your pots will be turned (finished off with a little trimming to neaten them) and glazed for you.
Included in cost: all tuition, materials, 2 pots, tea/coffee/refreshments.
