Improvers Throwing Weekend
August 13, 2022 @ 10:00 am - August 14, 2022 @ 4:00 pm| £250.00
Over the weekend, there will be a range of demonstrations as well as plenty of opportunities to practice throwing and to develop your technique. This weekend course is taught by our fantastic Clay College Graduates and is suitable for those who have experience of throwing, are able to centre clay, and are confident in throwing a 10cm cylinder, but who want to develop greater consistency in their throwing and learn to throw bigger and taller pots. The course will cover:
- Clay preparation; wedging and kneading.
- Centering clay.
- Lifting techniques, hand grips & throwing ribs.
- Handles, appendages and surface decoration.
- Fixing wooden bats.
Situated in the historic Middleport Pottery, the College offers a creative environment and excellent facilities including a potter’s wheel for each student. This is a practical masterclass and we are unfortunately not able to fire any of the pieces from this masterclass. Please note: There will be plenty of tea, coffee, and biscuits for you to help yourself to throughout the day but lunch is not provided for this course. Clay College is a not-for-profit organisation so all the proceeds from our masterclasses support the work we do.
