This course is for those who would like to learn/improve the skills of throwing on the potter's wheel. We recommend to take introduction/beginner course before this as you need some knowledge on handling clay at different stages.

You will learn the basic and very important techniques of wedging. On the wheel you will start from throwing simple shapes such as cylinder and bowl. You will also learn how to pull handles for mugs, cups and jugs, how to manipulate thrown shapes and how to apply surface decoration. Hopefully you will also continue to learn throwing plates but we would like you to learn the basics first.
This course focuses on the skills to manage and control clay on the wheel. It is a small group class for only 4 people, and you will get my good attention.

This course fee does NOT include material and firing costs.
