Six Week Production Throwing Course
For those ready to take their wheel throwing skills to the next level
This class is ideal for those with a foundational knowledge of wheel throwing, who are interested in expanding their skills and experience into the world of production ceramics. We'll teach you the foundations of throwing with speed and symmetry so those bowls will be looking like twins, not sisters in no time!
Similar to the six week introduction course, in the first two weeks we’ll revisit throwing and centring, with a focus on manipulating your clay into larger pieces.
In week three we cover trimming; removing ribbons of clay to finish off our pieces.
Weeks four and five are back to throwing, this time with a focus on creating larger, more complex pieces. We find now you’ve had a few tries and run through the entire process, you start to actually get the hang of it in these weeks. You'll now be confident enough in throwing to get a few more weeks of practice in, adding more pieces to your collection.
In week six, we come together for a glazing session to turn our masterpieces into fully functional ceramics.
