Pot Throwing Taster
Held on a Friday each month
These single day classes will introduce you to the rudiments of throwing clay on the potter's wheel.
By concentrating on a simplified technique you will quickly be able to make small simple shapes.
After lunch we will progress to the traditional method of manipulating clay on the wheel. We will decorate the pots by brushing on coloured liquid clays.
Classes are limited to 8 with each student having a dedicated wheel.
Ruardean Garden Pottery is a professional production workshop established in 1979. For 25 years the pottery produced a wide range of wheel thrown terracotta. Now it concentrates on a much smaller range of thrown traditional garden pottery together with a range of limited edition press moulded plant pots.
The aim of the pottery throwing classes is to develop skills rather than take home a lot of pots. The materials charge for 3 pots collected after glazing and firing is £10. Alternatively you can have your favourite pot glazed and sent to your home for £10.
If you would like to discuss anything about the class, ring me at the pottery on 07752900328.
