Potters Wheel Short Course – 5 Weeks

Starting Tuesday August 16th 6pm – 8pm

The Potters Wheel Short Course is a 5 week immersion into the very basic skills required to make simple pots on the potters wheel – “throwing”

You will learn about preparing clay, centering, opening and making cylinders, plates and bowls of various sizes. You will also learn to trim your work throw on a bat and pull handles to attach to make mugs.

Course Content

Our course is a journey into discovering the most important basic techniques that are behind anything that can be thrown. We teach you about the clay, about the firing process, about recycling of clay and even some beginner level glazing techniques.

Our wheel throwing is taught as a simple process that is easily translated as you practice and grow towards more advanced ceramic creations. Trimming your work is included from the 2nd lesson. Trimming is a satisfying and enjoyable part of the ceramic process that ensures your work is even and well weighted before you fire it and make it a forever piece.

All materials, clay, glazes, and tools will be provided, and all firing is included for your coursework.

This studio will become your studio! A place to come and hang with the people you meet. Our teachers are here because they love clay! They love ceramics enjoy imparting their knowledge to you. You will absolutely love the experience here

Please bring your own towel as this is a muddy play date with yourself.
