10 Week Potters Wheel Masterclass – Saturday 1st Feb 2020

February 1 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


10 Week Potter’s Wheel Master Class

Starting Saturday 1st February at 10 am

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

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!

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

Bonus – We give you a FREE 10 class pass for Open Studio Classes so that you can practice and finish your work! (Value $300).
