Introduction to Pottery – Level Three – Consolidate – Term One 2020

January 30 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Introduction to Pottery – Level Three – Consolidate – 10 Week Intensive Course

Starting Thursday January 30th at 6 – 9 pm

In Level One and Two you made course work. Now it is time for you to develop your own work! Don’t worry, we guide you every step of the way.

We begin this journey with you collecting a theme of work on Pinterest and other search engines that you enjoy, would like to make, or really resonate with. Then, you will make a mood board of your favourites, developing a theme, colour tone, texture, method, finish and use (dinner, art, sculpture…). finally you set about making and refining your work.

This course is $500 for the 10 Week Course – people will be making a variety of work, so we can’t fairly include materials across the board. You will pay for your materials at the discount rate of $5/kg for the finished work (just like Open Studio – where you pay $10/kg). If you want additional material not supplied in the studio (washi, screen prints, certain colours or glazes, tools) you will need to source them yourself as well!

The course is called “Consolidate” as that is exactly what you will achieve – a consolidated body of work.

Cost of course is $500. It does NOT include material costs as there is no fair way to average the cost of materials across students who might make anything from earrings to large totem pieces – So you will pay for your materials at the simple rate of $5/kg of finished work. (Open Studio cost is $10/kg, so you are receiving a 50% discount!). Also you can use any materials in the studio, however if you want a particular glaze or colour or washi, you will need to source and purchase that. If you want to make your own screen print designs, the normal cost of setting up your screen applies.

The course DOES include a 10 Class pass (value $300) so you can come in for an extra session each week to keep working while the Studio Teacher &/or Intern is on duty to help you!

NB – You should have a basic level of throwing/hand building, glazing and decorating techniques before entering this course.
