BEGINNER WHEEL THROWING COURSE
MAKE, REFINE, DECORATE
If you've always wanted too have a go on the wheel but not found the time or place - this is your chance.
Over the four sessions you will learn to make a cylinder, bowl or something 'unique' before decorating and glazing your work - ready for collection.
We know all too well that life and work can throw up last minute surprises, we ask you to do your best to make the session you have booked but if you cannot, we will try our best to find a space in an alternative class in the same week.
After a health and safety briefing you will be shown how the basic making techniques.
Then it's over to you start making your first shapes.
Week 2 is all about making, you will have your own dedicated equipment to maximise your making time.
At the end of this session you will have at least two items for you to develop further.
Once your items are 'leather hard' you will be able to add decoration, handles, lids and refine them ready for the first firing.
In the last week you will be shown the different techniques of glazing and try it out for yourself. Your final works will be fired.
