This is a purely throwing course for those looking to hone their skills on the wheel in a small group of students, suitable for beginners and intermediates.
Leonie Stanton has years of experience with the wheel, she will guide you through a series of exercises designed to rid you of bad habits and move you forward with your technique. There will also be time to work on your own projects and answer specific questions. There will be the opportunity to glaze your work for collection, or if in the last weeks you would prefer to continue practising at the wheel you are welcome to do so, at this point we could bisque fire your pieces for collection.
During session 1–4, Leonie will guide you through a series of exercises. You will learn how to throw cylinders evenly and efficiently, throw and turn footed bowls, plates and lidded vessels. You will be introduced to techniques of repetition throwing, pulling handles and lips. In session 5, Leonie will give an introduction to glazing and surface decoration. In session 5-10, you will have time to work on your own projects and ask specific questions relevant to your development.
Taking place on Thursday mornings 10am-1pm. The cost is £320, which doesn’t include the cost of fired work, which is £5 per 1kg of fired pot. (T&Cs)
