About The Event
In these classes you will work with approx 300-400 gram clay balls (tennis ball size) and learn the fundamentals of wheel throwing, trimming and glazing. Sessions will run every Wednesday night from 5:30 - 7:30 for 3 weeks, then with a week off for bisque firing, followed by a final week for glazing. (4 x classes over 5 weeks) No previous experience is necessary. All materials are supplied including good quality stoneware clay, firing and a wide selection of food-safe glazes. The focus will be on making a series of small bowls/vessels suitable for dips and impressing your friends, but you will be encouraged to follow your own creative urge with your work. Most students end up with around a dozen lovely glazed pieces. More information will be sent through upon registration.
