Potters Wheel Masterclass

10 Week Potter’s Wheel Master Class
Starting Tuesday 6th October 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!

- Bowls and Cylinders

- More clay – up to 800g

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!
We have two wheels that can be hired out ($200 cash bond) plus $30 per week (paid 4 weekly) if you want to practice at home. You may also book Open Studio sessions (throwers Nook) (for free) so that you can practice and glaze your work.
Course fees include all clay, glaze and firing, plus basic tools required for your work.
Please bring your own towel.
