3 Day Pottery Throwing Workshop 26/27/28th October Mixed Ability
This 3 day workshop will enable you to take the next step with your throwing skills to take it up a level or maybe you have 'had a go' on the wheel before, maybe you've got a wheel at home and want to take your pots from low centered bowl to a mug, jug or lidded vessel or you could be a complete beginner.
You will spend the 3 days developing the process of throwing on an electric potter’s wheel with the tutor Joy Gibbs Price and her assistant. Joy has taught ceramics for 28 years and is a practising potter. With expert tuition you will be given demonstrations and careful explanations of the different stages of making: clay preparation, wedging, centering, opening out. After mastering centering you will be helped to gain height with your 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 pieces.
You will have your own wheel, clay and tools. Any questions please message.
