Intermediate and Advanced Potters Wheel Short Course

January 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$425.00

Intermediate and Advanced Potters Wheel Short Course

Starts Thursday 27th January 6 – 8 pm

You need to be able to centre and control around 1 kg of clay to do this course – but, you don’t have to be a perfect thrower yet!

This course is project based – you can complete the project in the size and complexity that you are comfortable with – the idea is to challenge your design ad decoration, your throwing skills and to learn a whole bunch along the way!

You will need your own clay – we will mostly be making functional ware, so consider your work as a set if you like! Firing and all other materials included.

WEEK ONE

  • Set of noodle bowls
  • Aim for consistent size and shape
  • Consider glaze and decoration before making

WEEK TWO

  • Trim bowls – pay attention to size of foot and thickness of bowl.
  • Throw 6 – 10 large coffee cups
  • Aim for consistency
  • Consider carving for decoration

WEEK THREE

  • Trim and handle cups
  • Make a large casserole dish with lid
  • Keep in mind the hints regarding bowl bases from the noodle bowl making

WEEK FOUR

  • Trim and handle the casserole dish
  • Make three large lidded containers of ascending size

WEEK FIVE

  • Trim and decorate the 3 lidded containers
  • Throw three or four smaller single piece closed over forms
  • Trim in a chuck as demonstrated and create lid options

You have access to Community Clay throughout this course and as long as you require to complete your course work. If you create additional pieces simply pay for firing!
