10 week Throwing courses 

Intermediate level With Katrin Maier

This is a purely throwing course for those looking to hone their skills on the potters wheel in a group of 8 students. To take part you need to have completed at least one of our 12 weeks introductory ceramics courses, or to have thrown before in a different context. You need to be confident at centering and making a basic cylinder. To make the most of the class it will be beneficial if you can practice in between sessions in your own studio space or in The Kiln Rooms drop-in sessions. This class will be taught by Katrin. She is trained in repetition throwing and her own professional practice is based around the potters wheel. Katrin’s work.

During session 1 – 4, she will guide you through a series of set exercises. You will learn how to throw cylinders and tapered jugs evenly and efficiently, throw and turn footed bowls, plates and lidded vessels. You will be introduced to techniques of repetition throwing, to making galleries for lids, pulling handles and lips and turning on a chuck. In session 5, Katrin will give an introduction to glazing and surface decoration. In session 6 – 10, you will have time to work on your own projects and ask specific questions relevant to your development.

Taking place Thursday evenings (6:30pm-9:30pm). Cost £290, which doesn’t include the cost of fired work, which is £5 per 1kg of fired pot. (T&Cs)

Intermediate/advanced level With Adam Ross
This is a purely throwing course for those looking to hone their skills on the wheel in a small group of 8 students. If you have already learned the basics but want some time with a master thrower to refine your technique and develop your practice then this is for you! Adam Ross has years of experience with the wheel and a flourishing practice, he will guide you through a series of exercises designed to rid you of bad habits and move you forward with your technique. There will also be time to work on your own projects and answer specific questions relevant to your development. Turning and refining will also be covered and in the final week there will be the opportunity to glaze your work for collection after the course ends. If in the last week you would prefer to continue practicing at the wheel you are welcome to do so, at this point we could bisque fire your pieces for collection.

Taking place on Tuesday mornings (10am-1pm). Cost £320, which doesn’t include the cost of fired work, which is £5 per 1kg of fired pot (T&Cs)
