3 Day Pottery Throwing Workshop May 18/19/20th Introduction
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 27 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 8) which I will then glaze fire for you in a transparent 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.
