Starting Friday 2nd February for 4 weeks.
You can choose to do wheel throwing or hand-building.
For wheel throwing: 3 weeks of wheel throwing classes, covering wheel throwing and trimming techniques for making cups and bowls and 1 week of glazing.
For handbuilding: 3 weeks of handbuilding techniques: coiling, pinching and slab, and 1 week of glazing.
If you have always wanted to try your hand at pottery, get back into pottery after a break, or just learn something new, now is the time to give it a go in a supportive environment. Past students progress to making larger vessels at your own pace.
I have been attending classes with Karen for many years now, starting with her term classes and then moving into the monthly weekend sessions. Karen is a fantastic teacher! She takes a step-by-step approach to getting the basics of wheel throwing understood and then builds on those skills, adding more complex pieces to your repertoire. Karen has a love of ceramics that is infectious and with her classes creates a relaxing space to set your creativity free. Lee Turnley.
Classes are suitable for any skill level, especially beginners.
All equipment, clay and glazes are included for beginners: $295 for 4 classes. For all pieces that you choose to keep, additional firing charges apply, $15 per kg per firing, (cash payment on collection). Each piece requires two kiln firings. This encourages students to be more discerning about the work you choose to keep, as fired work is on earth forever and cannot be recycled after it has commenced the first firing.
Returning Students: 10% off courses and workshops for returning students. Unlimited amounts of recycled clay is available for both wheel throwing and hand-building. Contact Karen for the discount code before booking your spot.
Please check your diary to make sure you can attend all classes before booking your spot. There are no makeup classes available. NO refunds or transfers are permitted.
No more than 8 students per course, for maximum help and assistance, in a supportive environment.
