Pottery Wheel School Holiday Class | Ages 11 and over

THIS WORKSHOP IS COMING SOON TO THE WINTER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS! Pre-register your interest by joining the waitlist.

In this fun workshop you’ll learn how to make pots using a pottery wheel. Practice centering the clay on the wheel so you can build it up to a pot or other vessel. This class is a fun way to learn the basics of wheel throwing. Don’t worry too much about making everything perfectly symmetrical – just enjoy the process while learning the basics.

This class is aimed at students ages 11-15 (in year 6+)

What to expect

Over the day, students will:

  • be introduced to the principles of making ceramics on a pottery wheel
  • learn the fundamental techniques of wheel throwing including centring and shaping
  • practise throwing simple cylinders

What should I wear?

Wear closed-toe shoes and clothes you are relaxed about getting clay on.
Best to wear comfortable pants/trousers as you’ll sit close to the wheel as you throw.
Bring an apron.

What should I bring?

An old hand towel
