5-Week Wheel Throwing Course - Autumn '24

25th September, 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd October 2024

£220 for the 5 week course

Perfect for beginners

 

Our 5-Week Wheel Throwing Course is great for anyone who is a complete beginner to working with clay and is interested in learning how to throw their own pots, or anyone who has been working with slab building and is looking to expand their clay skills. 

 

Whilst on our 3 week wheel throwing course you take the wheel home with you in this class the wheels stay at The Studio.

 

The course costs £220 and not only includes 10 hours of expert tuition from our lovely ceramics teacher Andrea but also use of all of the tools and clay you will need.

 

During your first class Andrea will take you through the basic skills needed to throw on the wheel, such as clay preparation, centring the clay and pulling up a cylindrical shape (a key part of throwing as this is the basis for all wheel thrown ceramic pieces).

 

In the second lesson we will revisit all of these techniques, in addition to learning how to 'turn' the bottom of your pots.

 

Lessons 3 and 4 will evolve at your own pace to be a combination of throwing, 1-2-1 tuition, turning your pots and refinings and growing your ever expanding throwing skills.  This time will be used addressing any issues that you have encountered with Andrea sharing tips on how to overcome them. Andrea will also teach you how to make useful additions to your pieces, such as adding handles and lips, to change your pots into mugs or jugs.

 

Included in the price of this course is also the opportunity to have 6 of the pots you have made during the course clear glazed and fired. Any additional pieces can be finished/fired by for an additional fee. If you wish for us to fire more then do ask us for our kiln charges sheet which details cost per size of item.

 

All of these sessions will be held in our Studio in Holmer Green and limited to a maximum of 7 people to ensure that everyone gets the benefit of our teacher's time and expertise.

 

We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Studio!
