Held in JamFactory Ceramics Studios, this course will introduce participants to the techniques and skills required to throw clay on a potter’s wheel. The course will cover many aspects of wheel throwing with the aim of producing an object to take home. This workshop will cover various stages of ceramic making from shaping the object with the wheel, to firing, and glazing. This course is also suitable for participants who are familiar with wheel work, but would like to further develop their skills.
All materials supplied.
