Pottery Wheel Throwing Beginners and Beyond | Greg Crowe

Course overview

This pottery wheel throwing class is for students new to ceramics and those with prior experience. Learn to use the pottery wheel in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere, build on skills week by week, work on problem areas and much more. Students will learn through demonstration and practice. Greg Crowe has recently moved to Sydney from Perth and has been a pottery teacher for 40 year teaching a wide variety of ceramics. He specialises in in teaching throwing, from introductory throwing for complete beginners to mentoring experienced potters to develop their skills, design and approaches to making.

I encourage students to develop at their own pace, look at ceramics widely, both culturally and historically and develop their own direction. I am well aware of the difficulties some people have learning to throw but I am patient, positive and encouraging.

Our pottery and ceramics studio is located in our purpose built ceramics studio in the heart of Sydney’s inner west. Our pottery and ceramics studio is equipped with 8 wheels. Clay can be purchased at the workshop, a limited number of glazes are availabel and work is kiln fired on the premises. There is a maximum of 8 students in this class.

Students will work on projects, building their skills and confidence from week to week.
