Ceramics: three week throwing course

This three week wheel throwing course run by Chris will be on Tuesday evenings. It is suitable for adult beginners and those with a little prior experience who would like to develop their skills on the wheel further. 

Each weekly session will be from 6 – 8.30pm, and will take you through the different stages of making and and finishing pots. Maximum three places on this course- each student will have a wheel each. 

During the course the first week will focus on the basics of throwing; learning to center, hollow out the form and create vessel forms. Chris will guide you through making bowls, mugs and other functional pots, and also designing your pieces. During week two there will be the chance to practice your throwing further, and to potentially try new forms. You will also trim your pots from the first week, and add handles/spouts as appropriate. Slip decoration will be applied to the pots. The last week will focus mainly on  glazing your first pieces which will have had their first firing, and finishing off the pots from week two (these pots will be fired and glazed for you ready to collect a week or two later). 

£115 per person, inclusive of materials,preparation and firings.
