Potters Wheel Master Class

April 22 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


10 Week Potter’s Wheel Master Class

Starting Wednesday April 22nd 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 800g

Stage Three

  • Sets of bowls
  • Set of cups
  • Up to 1kg 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!

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

Bonus – We give you a FREE 3 month membership to Firebird Studios Open Studios so you can get in as much practice as you can (value $450)

Please Note – at the time of putting this course up the entire world is affected by coronavirus. At this stage we do not know how this will affect Firebird Studios’ ability to deliver these classes in person. We have cut class size down from 8 people to 6 people so we can effectively practice social distancing. Should we be in lock down or should you be unable to attend due to isolation requirements, we will honour all courses and classes and deliver them to you – either at a later date, or via “in person” online strategies – we will even put our wheels out on loan to you if required! Whatever is happening we will deliver!
