 THROWING CLASSES

Morning and afternoon sessions


The focus of these hands-on classes is to learn the skills necessary to throw pots on the potter's wheel. Tuition is by demonstration and one to one support at an appropriate level dependent on student competence.

These bespoke sessions are popular with family groups, complete beginners interested in a new challenge and experienced students who want to achieve new skills.

Beginners are given a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of working on the wheel and for students who can already throw an appraisal is made of their existing skills to ascertain how best to refine and advance their work.

From work made during the class pots are selected for glazing and reduction firing and are available to collect, or can be despatched, about three weeks later.

For local people throwing classes can be repeated on a regular basis and for visitors offer the opportunity of a creative break while on holiday in Cornwall.

These sessions usually take place in the morning (10.00am to 12.30pm) but afternoon (1.30pm to 4.00pm) enrolment can be arranged.

COURSE FEE
45.00 excluding materials.
