Wheel Throwing – Eastbourne Studio Pottery Course
October 5 @ 1:30 pm - November 2 @ 4:30 pm£180
Learn pottery with an emphasis on throwing skills.
Led by experienced teacher Lindsay Talmud. The focus of the course will be on throwing. Each participant will have at least one hour on the wheel per session. We’ll use a high quality clay, specially intended for throwing. You will be shown the techniques needed for throwing basic shapes and given plenty of time to practice, with close guidance if wanted. You will be encouraged to develop your throwing skills rather than to produce pots. Towards the end of the course you will be able to choose two or three of your best wheel-made pots to be fired and glazed.
When you are not working on the wheel, you will be able to use the studio facilities and materials to do handwork: thumb-pots, slab, coil, sculpture, etc. There will be close tutor supervision at all times.
A 6 week course starting on 05 October 2017, Thursday 1.30-4.30pm
The 6 week course will cost £180, which can be paid by instalments. A small firing charge also applies for finished work.
