Potters Wheel Masterclass – 10 Week Course

April 19 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Potter’s Wheel Masterclass – 10 Weeks

Starting April 19th  6pm – 8 pm

From beginner to pro, and everything in between. No matter where you are in your throwing development this Master Class will accelerate and refine your throwing skills. Suitable for complete novices through to those who can already throw. You will be challenged at your level to learn and refine your motor skills, your clay knowledge, your process knowledge and your finishing skills at every class.

This course is designed to show you the full range of throwing skill that, with practice, can translate into almost any shape you would like to make.

Cylinders, bowls, bottles, closed-over forms, lidded containers, gallery lids, handles, attaching spouts… everything you need to become a master in your own studio.


Stage One

  • Clay preparation
  • Centering
  • Opening
  • Pulling
  • Bowls and Cylinders

Stage Two

  • Controlling shape
  • Plates and larger bowls – throwing on a bat
  • More clay – up to 1kg

Stage Three

  • Sets of bowls
  • Set of cups
  • Up to 2kg clay

Stage Four

  • Bottles
  • Lidded Containers
  • Teapots
  • Joining multi piece work
  • Throwing to spec.

Well done! You have probably learned more in 10 weeks than many have done over years of pottery self development and other classes.

REMEMBER – throwing on a potter’s wheel is a master craft activity – it takes years of practice to master, so in this course you will learn skills, however, you MUST practice over the long term to develop those skills!

You can attend Open Studio as often as you like to practice your throwing and glaze your class work (work you make additional to your course work – that you want to keep – is charged at $10/kg for clay and firing).

Course fees include all clay, glaze and firing, plus basic tools required for your work.

Please bring your own towel.
