Stone Circle Pottery 7-Week Wheel Course
So here is what will be happening in the Stone Circle Pottery 7-Week Wheel Course.
First of all, excitement! Not least of all, excitement that we can all be back and learning and laughing together. To do this, we will be taking necessary precautions for the comfort and safety of everyone. Masks will not be mandatory in class; however, if you prefer to wear a mask for personal protection or the protection of others please do.
During this wheel course, you will be using the potter’s wheel for all your making classes. We’ll be making bowls first before moving to a more difficult cylinder form. I’ll provide you with all the clay you need. Each class will start with a demonstration including lessons on how to centre your clay and then pull it to make a vessel. We will practise these skills at every lesson.
Trimming your pots is also a vital skill. Every time you make a pot, you have to trim the bottom to make it beautiful and functional. I will also teach you how to make handles and feet for your creations as well as how to create interesting surface decorations. In our last class, we will glaze the pots, making them functional and beautiful.
These courses are made for all types of students from newbies to advanced. (For more advanced students, we will discuss your personal goals and make individual plans to help you grow as a potter.) There aren’t any extra fees for tools, clay, or glazing. Everything you need is included in the $340 class fee.
Come join the pottery adventure while learning and laughing in the quaint Stone Circle Pottery Cottage!
