Throwing course


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