Ceramics — Throwing at 25 Stoney Street (Level 1) — Part-time

Course outline

This is perfect for students who have completed the beginners course and want to learn to use the wheel.

If this is a method you have wanted to try, or improve on your technique, this is your opportunity. Working in our well-resourced ceramics department, you will be guided through clay preparation, basic throwing techniques, turning and decorative effects using a potter’s wheel.

Under the guidance and support of your tutor, the aim is for you to build a good foundation of skills and knowledge and understand the importance of safe studio practice so you gain the confidence to work independently on your own ideas.

You will receive an induction to our well resourced Ceramic Studio, excellent tutor guidance, new knowledge and skills in ceramics resulting in finished outcomes – glazed and unglazed as well as opportunities to develop your creativity.

Basic materials will be provided on the course. If you want to develop your work further you can purchase art materials at our Art Shop based at 25 Stoney Street.
