The course will focus on beginner to intermediate throwing skills. Students will learn to throw and trim mugs, bowls, vases, and cylindrical forms.

With help from your experienced teacher, you will learn to critique your work and troubleshoot common throwing issues. A variety of decorative and finishing techniques, including glazing, and adding handles will also be explored.

Once you complete this course you will have the skills to enrol in our Continuing Clay courses.

Clay and firing are an additional cost and can be paid for in class.
