Pottery for Beginners
Exclusive offer; six wheels, six participants, five sessions!
In this Pottery for Beginners course, you will learn all the foundation principles of how to throw pots on the wheel. Wheelwork is satisfying but can be harder than it looks although very achievable throughout this course. You will learn good skills and then practise, practise, practise to make perfect. Jino will teach clay preparation and wedging and then participants will learn how to centre their clay on the wheel. Correct methods and techniques will be taught so you get you great results.
In the Pottery for Beginners course, you will spend sessions 1, 2 and 3 making and throwing basic cylinders and different round forms. Session 4 will be spent trimming the ‘feet’, the bottom or underside of the vessels you make. Such an important step to creating the perfect vessel. Session 5 is spent on glazing your creations in a simple way through dipping. This is the final part of the process; the artworks then go back in the kiln for firing and then they are ready for you to collect.
All materials, tools, equipment, and firing are included in the fee. We recommend to participants that they bring an old towel.
In the last 5 minutes of class participants clean the wheel they have worked on.
Participants will choose their 4 best pieces to be glazed and fired.
