Beginners Weekend



About the Class

This intensive weekend course is a great way to focus on learning how to throw on the potter's wheel. On Saturday morning we work on the basics, practising technique with cylinders. The afternoon is spent improving on this and exploring other forms. The Sunday morning is spent trimming down pots and making them your own. Decorating slip is painted onto pots before they are fired to finish your work. 

The cost of the class includes all materials and you will be able to choose your best 8 pots to fire. We offer each student a potter’s wheel, the studio stoneware clay and stoneware decorating slips.

All classes are for adults only and a maximum of 10 people.


Saturday and Sunday 10-4 pm.
