Description

Wheel Forming - Beginners

Lynn Treers

Term 2 - 8 week course - 30 April to 18 June

Tuesdays - 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm

Minimum 5 / maximum 10 students per course


In this course students will gain experience in wedging clay, centring clay on the wheel and throwing simple forms. Each student will have the opportunity to complete a mug and a small jug with a handle, a cereal bowl and a small sugar bowl with a simple lid. Additional skills will be incorporated into the course, such as weighing clay, measuring and making a lid for a pot 'off the hump', trimming forms and bases, altering a rim to form a functional spout, pulling a handle, throwing and or adding a knob to a lid.

Students will be encouraged to repeat shapes, cut them up and review outcomes, thereby gaining the skills to throw pots independently and confidently, taking into consideration shape and proportion. Each student's best pieces will be selected each week for firing. Basic glazing and firing will be discussed, along with the use of slips, underglazes, decals, surface treatment and pot alteration.

Students of differing levels of expertise will be accommodated within this class, making their term of using clay an enjoyable experience. This course accommodates differing levels of expertise within a relaxed learning environment, where all students have an enjoyable experience using clay.
