If you have already learnt to center your clay on the wheel, or you are experienced, this class is for practice of all levels, however it will not focus on the beginners essentials and you need some prior experience. Take the next step to practicing your creative side with a highly experienced professional potter and teacher. Step by step instruction will have you throwing more specific projects so you may refine your hand. We have all the material and tools, you just need to bring your creative self! What will I learn? • Learn how to throw a bowl and mug • Learn the secrets of throwing bigger pots, such as planters • Learn finishing techniques, such as making and attaching handles • Explore simple glazing techniques • Understand how kiln firing works This course does include glazing and firing of your pieces in the initial cost of the course. However, there will be limited kiln space as you will only glaze and fire a selection of your pots, the rest will be discarded as practice, this is why essential throwing skills are required for this course.
