Wheel Throwing For Beginners - Seven Week Course - Wednesday 6:30-9pm


Price: $380 Per Person.

When: Wednesday evenings 23rd October - 4th December, 2019, 6:30 - 9:00pm

Where: Christy’s Studio in St Peter’s SA, just east of the city. Address provided upon booking.

Includes: All materials, tools, aprons, glazes, firing (+ plenty of fun and learning in the studio!).

Participants learn all the basic skills needed to create their own ceramic wares on the pottery wheel - including centring, throwing various forms, trimming, adding handles, decorating and glazing. You will use a white mid-fire clay (your pieces will be strong and durable to use), and decorate in fun colours and designs. Classes are small groups of 5 people set in Christy’s St Peters pottery studio. The small group means hands-on, personalised assistance to each participant. Students tend to make between 12-20 pieces by the end of the 7 weeks, and they will all be fired ready for collection approximately 3 weeks after the class finishes.
