The aim of this course is to introduce throwing to the beginner.
This means we will be concentrating on learning to throw small cylinders, which are the basis of all thrown pots.
We can also look at pulling handles to attach to the cylinders, to make mugs.
All the clay and tools needed will be provided, but you should bring your own apron or dress in clothes that you don’t mind
getting clay on.
You will also need an old towel to dry your hands, a face mask or visor and a packed lunch.
If you have long hair then it is a good idea to bring something to put your hair back with as there is a lot of leaning forward over the wheel. You may also need to trim your fingernails.

The course fee includes the bisque firing of one pot.
If you make other pots that you want to fire then there is a small cost to pay that depends on its weight, but it is not very much.
Your pot/s will be bisque fired later for you to glaze at a later date.
Glazing can be done by coming in to one of the evening or day time pottery sessions.
