4-week Introduction to Pottery (Wheel-throwing)

Tuesdays, 13th August - 4rd September 2019
7pm - 9.30pm

The foundations of wheel-throwing will be taught during this 4-week course (one 2.5 hour class per week). Step-by-step guidance will be given to guide students to throw cylindrical shapes like bowls and teacups, turning/trimming the bases of students’ pieces, and glazing techniques. After 4 weeks, students will have their own glazed bowls and teacups fired and may be collected anytime after the 4th week. This course is ideal for beginners.

The cost of this course includes clay, use of wheel and tools, materials for decorating and glazing, and firing. Basic tools (for you to keep!) will be under separate costs. This course will take in a maximum of 7 students to provide maximum guidance. Sign-ups will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.

6-week Handbuilding Extension - Intermediate

Wednesdays, 11 September - 16 October
7.15pm - 9.45pm

The 6-week immersion into hand-building will allow the students to have an in-depth exploration of different forms using the techniques taught in the beginner course. The lessons encourage creativity and understanding of the clay body, and will focus on the form of each piece of work. From geometric-shaped vessels, marbling, to alteration of pots, the class will work towards developing mindfulness when creating their pieces. All works will be fired after the 6th class, and can be collected one month after.

This course is a continuation of the 4-week introduction to hand-building course, and is also suitable for people who have had beginner hand-building course elsewhere.

The cost of this course includes clay, use of wheel and equipment, materials for decorating and glazing, and firing. This course will take in a maximum of 8 students to provide maximum guidance. Sign-ups will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.
