Pottery Wheel Intermediate Workshop | 2 Day Workshop

Course overview

This class is for students with previous wheel throwing experience who want to refine and build on existing skills. Students may work with Greg to solve problem areas, practice working with larger amounts of clay, throwing forms and vessels of different shapes and sizes and altering forms; learn new finishing and clay decoration techniques.

Our purpose built ceramics studio is equipped with 8 wheels. Clay can be purchased at the workshop, a limited number of glazes are available and work is kiln fired on the premises. There is a maximum of 8 students in this class.

1 or 2 objects (size dependent) will be bisque fired. Bisque firing will occur during the week and work can be collected on Sunday 14 January where you may choose to glaze your vessels and have them fired (this is also included in the workshop fee).

Is this course right for me?

This class is for students who have previously attended wheel throwing classes and are comfortable with wedging, centering clay and throwing small vessels.

Materials and Clay Firing

Included in the course fee:
Students will be provided with a half bag of clay each (5kg) to enable completion of several vessels. Additional clay may be purchased at $5 per 2kg (or $20 a 10kg bag)
You will be able to use our pottery tools during the workshop, or you if you already have a set bring what you have.
1 or 2 objects (size dependent) will be bisque fired. Bisque firing will occur during the week and work can be collected on Sunday 14 January where you may choose to glaze your vessels and have them fired (this is also included in the workshop fee).

All students should bring:

a large sponge (car wash size).
a thick kitchen sponge cut into four pieces
an old hand towel
a plastic storage container with a lid is useful to keep your materials together (about 40cmx30cmx15cm high) (eg from Ikea, officeworks or a discount shop)
a notebook to take notes and sketch your ideas
an apron
wear old closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothes you are relaxed about getting clay on. For wheel throwing, best to wear comfortable pants/trousers as you’ll sit close to the wheel as you throw.

Our class sizes are small, ensuring you receive the individual tuition you need.

Unless otherwise noted, clay is supplied for ceramic workshops and this is included in your fees, however there may be other items to bring, so please review course description carefully.
