3 Day Pottery Throwing Workshop 20th/21st/22nd October
This 3 day workshop will enable you to start with the basic skills and take your throwing skills to the next level.
You will spend the 3 days developing the process of throwing on an electric potter’s wheel with the tutor Joy Gibbs Price. Joy has taught ceramics for 25 years and is a practicing potter. With expert tuition you will be given demonstrations and careful explanations of the different stages of making: clay preparation, wedging, centering, opening out and pulling up. You will also learn how to refine your pots with trimming, adding handles and decoration.
The experience runs for 5 hours every day 10am - 3pm with an hour break for lunch. A light lunch is included in the course. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included whenever you need a break.
The three days will be split into clay preparation, throwing, refining and decoration and at the end of the 3 days you will select your favourite pieces (maximum of 10) which I will then glaze fire for you in an stoneware glaze. Please allow up to four weeks after your experience for the collection of your finished pieces. Pieces can be posted for an extra charge.
COVID19 - There will be social distancing and hygiene requirements in place. You will have your own wheel, clay and tools. Any questions please message.
