About this class
A new class that focuses on throwing for complete beginners or anyone who has tried throwing but would like to run through the basics again. Running over six weeks starting on Tuesday the 9th of January from 2.00 to 5.00, the last session is on Tuesday the 13th of February. This block of six three hour classes is £175 and all materials are included, there is a small additional charge for firing by weight of finished work at £5.50 per kilo. In week one we'll show you how to prepare the clay ready to throw, the different types of wedging, securing the clay on the wheel, getting to grips with centering and opening out. In weeks two and three you'll learn how to pull up the walls of the clay into a cylinder and how to start opening out the cylinder to create a bowl. In weeks four and five you will practice and stretch these techniques as well as learning how to turn your 'leather hard' work to refine it's shape and base profile. In week six we will be glazing your selected pieces. We keep the classes small so that we can tailor our teaching to your needs. Throwing can be a very messy activity, wear clothes you don't mind getting coated in clay and please bring an apron.
