  • Week 1: We jump straight onto the wheels and set the tone for our six week journey together. Kicking off with a demonstration of how-to, which might serve as a refresher or a starting point. Whether you have done pottery before or not, there’s always something you can learn. We’ll spend the first session seeing where you’re at and what you can make, focusing our creations on a bowl. You will make three to four pieces this session.
  • Week 2-3: We give time for the skills to develop with lots of time to practice. We may take our pieces from a bowl, to more of a mug, or even a vase, creating higher pieces, or adding curves, collars and flares to your skill repertoire. You will make three to four pieces this session.
  • Week 4: This is where we bring it all together! We’ll create four beautifully refined pieces. Across the four weeks, you choose you top four most refined pieces to carve, decorate, alter and glaze.
  • Week 5: Altering your refined pieces to prepare it for firing and glazing. Here you might trim the bases of your pieces, add a handle to a mug or add decorative features to add character to your pieces.
