In this fun 10-week course, you learn the basics of pottery making through hand-building and wheel-throwing. A variety of decorating techniques and materials help you to create pieces that are all your own! Classes are suitable for with or without clay experience.
• 10 classes per course (one class per week) • 10 students per class • $475 plus HST includes clay, materials and firing
A fun-filled three–hour session (with tea and cookie break) will include two activities:
Activity 1: Make a slab–built dish with impressed decorations and added foot. This piece is draped over a plaster mould for shaping. Successful results are assured.
Activity 2: Wheel–throwing. Fast, fun and messy! this will be your "Ghost" moment. Emphasis is on the experiential aspect of this activity, as resulting product is not guaranteed.
Participants are given a few different glaze colours to choose from to finish their pieces. We take care of the smoothing, glazing and firing of all pieces. Everything is ready for pick-up two weeks after the event.
Dress code: casual clothing and shoes. We use white clay that will wash out from fabrics. Suede and plush fabrics not recommended.
