Wheel Throwing Classes

We are now offering wheel throwing classes! These 1-1 classes offer you intensive time with the tutor to learn the art of wheel throwing.

Classes last one hour and can be booked by emailing us.
Sessions are available on Sundays and Tuesdays or by request.

1 hour wheel throwing tutorial for one: £30
1 hour wheel throwing tutorial for two: £50

Please note, we encourage you to edit and be selective with your wheel throwing as this is the best way to learn! Therefor keeping anything you make is not included in the price of the class. If you would like to keep anything you make during a tutorial, speak to your tutor and they will arrange for it to be fired. This will incur an additional cost dependant on the size of the work.

Dundee Ceramics Workshop Student Fellowship – Deadline 5th June 2018

Dundee Ceramics Workshop is delighted to announce the availability of a new membership tier in our studio: the Dundee Ceramics Workshop Fellowship.

Running alongside our standard membership, DCW hopes that our new Fellowship will foster a community of ceramic artists having open access to facilities that are currently unavailable elsewhere inDundee. The selected artists will be able to use the workshop without the restrictions of our volunteer schedule, and to store work at the studio, allowing for time and space to develop more complex pieces and bodies of work.

Fellowship places will run for three months at a time, with the possibility of extending this membership for up to six continuous months. Successful applicants will be asked to commit to a two month Fellowship from 1 July 2018.

Applicants should have confidence in their abilities and understand that they will have access to the space when no studio technician or committee members are on site. In depth guidance in specific techniques and one-on-one tuition are available, but will be subject to a fee and must be scheduled in advance.

 Fellowship Details:

Cost: £80 for two months
– 24 hour access to studio
– Designated storage space for work
– Designated storage space for materials
– Discounted rates on courses and workshops that occur during the Fellowship period
– One medium sized bisque firing per month (pre-determined space within kiln)

Availability: four places – two of which will be for sculptural/fine artists, and two for artists whose practice is applied art/design-led.

 Application deadline: Tuesday 5th June 2018, 5pm
