This five week pottery course gives you the full pottery experience! Learn how to throw on the wheel, hand-build, and decorate pottery. Great for all experience levels!
So you want to play with mud? Get your feet wet, or should we say your hands dirty, in the art of pottery. Clay is fun, versatile and limitless to what you can make!
This class covers it all - technical skills, creative exploration, one-on-one learning, plus independent project time. You'll be amazed at what you can accomplish!
Week 1+2: Throw + Trim! Take it from us: Throwing is fun! So we make sure everyone gets their own wheel and jumps right in on the first night. Nick will teach you the basics for throwing bowls, mugs and plates. You will spend a solid 3 hours making pots, and sometimes "whatnots!" Spend another night trimming and adding handles.
Week 3: Build Mugs! Learn how to make mugs and vessels using hand-building techniques. Sarah will teach you how to work from a slab to build beautifully textured mugs and more!
Week 4: Decorate! Learn how to give your pottery the wow-factor, using surface techniques to achieve patterns and graphic images using underglaze and image transfers. You will be decorating directly on to sandwich plates and tiles.
Week 5: Glaze! The best part, in our opinion. Choose from our selection of in-house glazes and commercial glazes, with lots of colours to choose from.
Includes everything: clay, glazes, and firings. All you have to bring is your creativity!
