Throwing skills (2 days)
Course fee: £200
An excellent opportunity to those wishing to learn the basic skills and also those who need time to develop their throwing techniques. Relaxed informal sessions covering all aspects of wheelwork, from preparation to final finishes. Not all work will be retained; but selected pieces will be fired and glazed for your future collection. Each course is limited to 3 students; the small group size guarantees maximum contact time and technical support.
DAY 1: Clay preparation. Set exercises and practical demonstrations. Throwing and altering forms.
DAY 2: Finishing previous day's work, adding handles and decorative details.
Evaluating finished work and selecting better pieces for firing.
Timetable:- 10 am to 4 pm daily Lunch 1 hour
Please note that as there are only three students per course it is advisable to book early.
A deposit of £50 is required.
If these dates do not suit you, or the course is full, it may be possible to hold additional throwing workshops at your convenience so long as we can find three students.
