Pottery Workshop - Throwing Skills
Sat 8 April 2017, 09:30 – 15:00 BST
This one-day throwing workshop has been designed for those wanting to learn how to throw or improve their throwing skills.
So whether you are new to pottery, a returning amateur or a keen thrower, our ceramics expert will demonstrate a series of techniques and provide specialist tips on how you can perfect the complex art of throwing.
£90.00 per-person, lunch and soft refreshments are included
You should be aged 19+. There are no formal entry requirements for this experience.
We aim to provide you with new skills and the time to practise techniques to master your pottery skills.
Over the day you will learn:
• How to prepare clay
• How to effectively centre clay on the wheel
• Wedging techniques
• How to throw a basic bowl and cylinder
• Next steps - dependent on your individual skill set.
To ensure we can offer all our learners the best experience, numbers on this course have been capped at a maximum of six learners. We have three wheels available so learners will be split into two groups. Each group will equally share their time on the wheels.
How will I be assessed?
There are no assessment criteria - just observe, have a go and enjoy!
Are there any additional costs or specialist equipment required?
Our prices are inclusive of materials and the firing in the kiln.
All completed work will be fired at a later date. Once fired, we will arrange a date with you to come and collect your pieces.
