This course is ideal for you if you are looking for an extensive introduction to throwing and hand building or just to refresh rusty skills. The fee NOW INCLUDES any pottery made on the course to be glazed and fired in our kilns! Week 1 and 2: Basics of hand building and throwing on the wheel (Pinch, coiling, surface decoration, throwing a cylinder etc.) Week 2-4: Development of these skills to produce more variety of forms e.g. Mug (handles), bowls, plates There will be a fairly even split between wheel time and hand build up to this point.

We recommend that the minimum age is 14 when accompanied by an adult on the course and 16 without adult supervision.
