The beginner course will start your clay making journey!

5 Sessions – SATURDAY MORNINGS, 9am to 12pm AND WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, 6pm to 9pm, September 29, October 2, 6, 9, 16. There is a hiatus between class 4 (October 9) and 5 (October 16) to bisque fire your pieces. Last class (5) will be a glazing session.

This 5 week course will start you on your journey to becoming a potter. You will learn clay preparation, tools, centring clay, opening a vessel, control of the clay on the wheel and basic finishing of your piece. This course will reinforce these basic skills with the aim to throw a perfect cylinder which is the beginning of most wheel projects. Maximum 5 pieces will be saved and fired.

Good studio practices and solid technique will give you the confidence to come in and practice throwing independently.

This class is a pre-requisite for Clay 2, followed by Clay 3. After Clay 3 you will be eligible for open studio.
