Wheel & Hand Building Courses
Unsure whether wheel throwing or hand building is for you? Why not try both during one of our combined classes below?
Hand Building Courses
During our hand building courses you can learn traditional techniques such as coiling, slab building and pinching. These ancient techniques can be used to create functional or ornamental pieces. If you’re intersted in creating geometric forms or sculptural pieces, the below classes are a brilliant starting point for your journey with hand built ceramics!
Intro to Wheel Throwing
From centering clay to pulling walls, during Intro to Wheel Throwing you’ll come away knowing the basic principles of throwing. This class is suitable for complete beginners with no previous wheel throwing experience.
Intermediate Wheel Throwing
This course is suited towards those that know the basics of wheel throwing and want to move on to more complex forms such as bottle shapes and large plates. If you can center clay and throw simple cylindrical shapes then this course is perfect for you!
Advanced Wheel Throwing
Through research, design and experimentation, this course will focus on the techniques required to be able to create specific vessels such as lidded jars, butter bells, large vases and platters. You’ll also be introduced to advanced trimming techniques which will enable you to trim galleries in jars, using trimming to incorporate decorative patterns, and how to use a chuck to center a piece on the wheel. More blocks coming soon!
