All wheel thrown items start life as a cylinder. Mastering this form provides you with a solid base to expand your skills.

Want to give it a try?

The primary focus of this course is learning the basics of wheel forming. Students will repeatedly throw cylinders, cutting them and reviewing the outcomes to develop their skills. Those with previous experience will be challenged to throw the ‘perfect’ cylinder in several efficient movements.

This course is about quality not quantity.

Students will begin by creating pinch pots from a range of clay bodies, to use as test pieces for glazing. By the end of term, each student should have a number of glazed cylinders to take home.

On completing this course, students will have developed skills in:

  • knowing a variety of clay bodies;

  • making a pinch pot;

  • wedging and weighing clay;

  • centring a ball of clay on the pottery wheel;

  • throwing a cylinder;

  • turning a foot on a cylinder;

  • glazing test pieces and cylinders;

  • basic kiln & firing knowledge.


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is plenty of on and off-street parking. However, we are located near several schools and when they have events, there can sometimes be difficulty finding a park clsoe by. Please ensure you park legally to avoid a Council parking infringement.

What can I bring into the event?

Please refer to the list in your welcome email.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
