Learn Pottery Wheel Throwing (Part 2 Trimming, Turning)

Class overview

This 2 hour pottery class introduces Part 2 of making work on the pottery wheel: Trimming and Turning and an introduction to decorative techniques. 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 and a few more tricks. 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.

Students should have already attended Part 1 and have left behind some vessels they can work on that have been dried to leather hard (not already bisque fired). You should leave at least 7 days between attending part 1 and part 2.

What to expect

  • through demonstration and practice learn the principles of trimming, turning your vessels
  • be introduced to some basic decoration techniques. This can include sgraffito or adding elements to your vessel

Students can leave their trimmed vessels for bisque firing (included in the fee). You also have the opportunity to return and glaze your vessels for a small additional fee.

Our purpose built ceramics studio is equipped with 8 wheels. 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.

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, you take off jewellery and watches and remove any long necklaces, scarves etc from around your neck

What should I bring?

Bring an apron and also an old towell (old bath towell or large hand towell)
