Learn Pottery Wheel Throwing Beginner Blast (Part 1, Prepare, Centre, Shape)

Class overview

Have you ever wanted to try pottery wheel throwing? Then this beginner pottery wheel blast is for you. No experience is required and all materials are included in the workshop fee.

The part of learning to use the pottery wheel is getting an introduction to the 3 principle steps of: PREPARING your clay, CENTERING your clay, SHAPING your clay. In our workshop Part 1 Prepare, Centre and Shape, you will be introduced to these three steps through demonstration and hands on practise throwing simple shapes and cylinders on the potter wheel. Be prepared to get addicted!

We recommend that you follow up Part 1 attending:

Part 2 (2 hours) Trim and Turn | In part 2 students learn how to TRIM and TURN the vessels you made in Part 1. Trimming and Turning is the next element in the wheel process. In this step you make your vessels more pleasing to the eye, tidying up rough edges, shaping the rim, adding a foot at the base of the vessel. If there’s time you may also be introduced to a few basic decorative techniques. After this session, we will bisque fire your work in our kiln.

Part 3 (1 hour) Glaze session Glazing is the final stage in the process where your work is coated in a clear or coloured glaze which makes it waterproof and functional. We will let you know once your work is glaze fired and ready for collection (approximately 2 weeks later).

If you enrol in all 3 sessions at once you will receive the package for the discounted price of $150. If you enrol in each session individually, there is no discount.

What should I wear?

Wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothes you are relaxed about getting clay on. We suggest comfortable pants/trousers as you’ll sit close to the wheel as you throw.
Please ensure long hair is tied back, take off jewellery and watches and remove any long necklaces, scarves etc from around your neck

What should I bring?

A sponge (car wash size is great)
Bring an apron and also an old towel (old bath towel or large hand towel)

What materials will be provided?

Included in the price is half a bag of clay each, kiln firing and and basic glazes to enable completion of several vessels.
You can also use our pottery tools.

Will my vessels be fired?

Yes, the greenware will be bisque fired after session 2, and then glaze fired after session 3.
