Wednesday Evening Class – Throwing
February 26 @ 6:00 pm - April 1 @ 9:00 pm| £150
Clay College Stoke runs weekly mixed ability evening classes that are aimed at people who wish to learn the techniques of studio pottery in a professional working studio environment. The classes are suitable for beginners and those with experience of clay.
Situated in historic Middleport pottery, we offer a creative environment, excellent facilities including a potter’s wheel for each student that attends. We aim to teach you a variety of techniques to help you produce well-made pots.
The class will be taught by Andy Mason who has dedicated many years developing his ceramics knowledge, skill and creativity. Making practical, robust tableware pots is at the heart of his studio work, reflecting the dynamic hand making process through subtle asymmetric shape and surface motif. Andy shares his enthusiasm for ceramics through tuition, practical demonstrations, exhibitions, workshops and events where he enjoys promoting the great historical association of pottery and food, bringing inspiration through presentation, process and aesthetics.
Towards the end of the course, you will be asked to select up to 6 medium sized pots for glazing and firing. Once the whole process is completed, you are welcome to take your pots home but they must be collected from Clay College as we are unable to post any pots.
Evening classes run during college term times in 6 week blocks, on Monday or Wednesday evenings. Please note there are only 12 places available for each set of classes.
