About the event
Dates: Thursdays 17th & 24th August, 6:30pm - 9:30pm
In this 2 week short introductory course you will learn how to make a small vessel, such as a bowl or vase (or something in between) on a potter's wheel.
Class 1: Meet the clay, wedging and throwing a basic form. Class 2: Trimming the piece and adding your very own style to it through coloured slip/underglaze and carvings.
Your piece will then be fired and glazed with transparent glaze and ready for pick up in 4 - 5 weeks' time after the course.
This course is aimed at complete beginners. Maximum of 4 students.
2 kg of clay, glaze, all materials and firings are included. More clay can be purchased as we go.
Please wear clothing that can get muddy and bring an old towel. Short fingernails can be an advantage :-)
