Six week: Introduction to wheel throwing
Immerse yourself in the fundamentals of the pottery wheel
This. Is. It. During this six-week ceramics course you're going to ground yourself with a foundation of wheel thrown pottery. You’ll be able to take a ball of mud and throw it into something beautiful (or not, that's fine too).
Similar to the four week course, in the first two weeks we’ll cover centring (the most gloriously frustrating, hypnotising process you’ll ever experience), and how to manipulate your blob into a work of art. In week three, we learn how to trim ribbons of clay to finesse our items. However, in the six week course, we 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.
+ No experience required
This class is ideal for folks with zero experience, though to those who've had a few lessons, but need a refresher to improve their technique.
+ Can I reschedule
Class sessions run for six consecutive weeks. Same day, same time. Sorry, if you can’t make it to a session, we’re not able to offer make-up classes, or switcheroos.
+ How do I book
Please note: only the FIRST date of the session is listed on our booking calendar below. You only need to book in for the first date of the session and you will be automatically signed up for all 6 consecutive weeks.
This class is at our Renwick St Studio
