Having learnt to throw, many potters lack the skills and confidence to throw large items. This course gives you the chance to improve your technique, and have a lot of fun with Cellan along the way!
From discussing the techniques of throwing large, the importance of preparation, throwing, turning to reclaiming, you will be guided by demonstrations and practical sessions to gain confidence.
This course is aimed at those with some experience on the wheel, and not for the complete beginner or advanced thrower. It is open to adults (18+). The cost includes instruction, refreshments and drinks.
It is not intended for those who want to make prolifically, but to develop skills. Please note that in addition to the course fee, any items you make and want to keep will be weighed and charged for per 100g to cover the materials and firing costs.
The pots you keep will be glazed for you and you can pick them up a few weeks later.
This course is led by Cellan Cox, and runs on consecutive Fridays for 3 hours each time.
