Continue your journey and learn to throw clay on the wheel with us!

Throwing Beginners II

This class is for Beginners who have finished Beginners I.  You know how to prepare your clay and centering it on the wheel, but you want to increase the weight of the clay you throw.  Or you have done a class before and just need a re-start, then this class is for you.

You will learn and practice the wheel throwing techniques needed to create decorative and functional ceramic items.

You learn how to prepare the clay, centering bigger weights, opening and pulling clay further up. We make bowls, platters, mugs and jars with lids by the end of the term.

You learn about different clays and what effect they have for your throwing and glazing. We also show and teach you glazing with Underglazes, Brush On Glazes and Dipping Glazes and their different application technique. You also learn about firing and kilns, to ensure your work is on the right firing shelf before it goes into the kilns to be fired

Age restriction 18+
