Potters Wheel Masterclass

January 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Potter’s Wheel Masterclass – 10 Weeks

Starting Tuesday 25th January 6 – 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 class approaches learning to throw as an apprentice would learn. If you are prepared to go back to the very beginning and train new habits, even a seasoned thrower will improve their skill! For a novice thrower – learn once and learn well! You will be set up with skills you can cherish for life!


Stage One

  • Clay preparation
  • Centring
  • 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 Community Clay as often as you like to practice and glaze (work you make additional to your course work – that you want to keep – is charged at $8/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.
