This course is mainly for beginners who would like to try throwing on the potter's wheel.
You will learn wedging techniques and how to centre clay, throw simple shapes and turn them. You will also learn how to pull handles for mugs and jug. I will show you how to treat the surface using turning tool or sculpting tools, found objects and slip.
This course focuses on the very basic skills to manage clay on the wheel and 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. We will weigh the amount of clay used for your work.
