Learn wheel throwing basics
This 2.5 hour wheel thrown pottery introduction gets you hands-on and dirty learning wheel throwing pottery basics. (Patrick Swayze not included).
Each student will have their own wheel to work from and following a masterful tutor demonstration its straight down to practice. Out tutors include Nam Tram and Clover from the recent series of The Great Pottery Throwdown,expect to be impressed.
Support will be on hand as you try to get to grips with centering and throwing basics. We keep class sizes small: no more than 5 students to make sure you each get the proper attention. Expect a few pieces to make it below the table into the slop bucket for recycling and about 2 pieces each to make it onto the keeps board. We'll fire and glaze keeps ready for collection in about 4 weeks time.
Please note that we continually add dates to meet demand. This workshop normally runs on a Sunday morning or afternoon. If you're looking for a date in advance that is not on the list, please get in touch as we may be able to schedule it.
If you’re expecting a scene from Ghost,
then buy the DVD.
But If you’re looking for real wheel pottery less, excellent tuition, small group sizes and personal support when needed then book a Go Create wheel weekend. This course is suitable for absolute beginners or those wishing more wheel practice under the guidance of our brilliant potter, artists in their own right. Group sizes are small to ensure individual support and what’s more important, each student will work at their own wheel to maximize the understanding of the craft.
An introduction to porcelain
Experience the delicate feel of porcelain and learn how to build textured vessels or tea lights which complement its properties. We’ll showcase some contemporary approaches to help inspire your own original designs. We’ll then fire and glaze your best 2 pieces.
Got a handle on it? Don’t stop there.
There’s more to handbuild than frocks and Perry.
Whether you’re an absolute beginner or someone whose maybe dabbled a few times, this course will lift the lid on a range of ceramic techniques and push you further with classic or experimental project builds: from teapots, to clay bird houses, dinner sets or expressive sculptures. This is an exciting course not to be missed.
Create with clay
We’ll show you how
Working from a model and expressing through clay. People of all abilities including newcomers welcome. The aim of the workshop is to create something with a resemblance to the human figure – whether abstract or vaguely representative. Prior to the model’s arrival the tutor will commence with a short demonstration on how to build the clay model with firing in mind ( so as not to explode in the kiln) and will discuss the type of clay being used to negate the use of an armature. The tutor will then offer support and advise throughout the clay modelling from life session. Pieces will be dried out completely and then fired ready for collection approximately 4-6 weeks later. Final pieces can be kept indoors or outdoors. Some life drawing experience is desirable though not totally essential. Group size is approximately 10-12 people max.
