What is the course about?

Learners will have one wheel each. This course covers all techniques including basic beginner-level skills such as clay preparation, centring, throwing to cylinder, making bowls and turning a foot ring. More advanced learners will be challenged with individual tasks such as making lids, spouts and plates, etc. There will be an opportunity to try the more challenging aspects of wheel throwing techniques such as cutting and joining. Learners will also have the opportunity to build on existing skills and to extend them.
