Six Week: Continuer for Wheel Throwing
Take the next steps in wheel throwing.
During this six-week ceramics course you'll build on your existing experience, while finnessing those fundamentals of wheel throwing. You’ll be able to take bigger balls of mud and throw them into the shapes you want (well, at least some of the time!).
In the first two weeks we’ll revisit centring (the most gloriously frustrating, hypnotising process you’ll ever experience), and how to manipulate your blob and bigger blobs into a works of art. In week three, we learn how to trim ribbons of clay to finesse our items. We then go back to throwing for weeks four and five. We find now you’ve had a few tries and run through the entire process, you start to actually get the hang of it in these weeks. In the final week, we come together for a glazing session to turn our masterpieces into fully functional ceramics.
+ Lesson length
Included in our six week session is weekly, 2 hour lessons from our fabulous throwing master, who will hold your hand every step of the way - literally if needed - a bag of beautiful, tactile midfire clay, firing and glazing.
