This course is perfect for those who have never worked with clay, are interested in trying a new skill, or as a re-introduction for people who have been out of touch for some time.

Experienced tutors teach students a range of techniques for working with clay for 3 hours each week, for 9 weeks.

Students will:

    • Get a feel for clay and its properties through various hand building techniques and projects including pinch pots, coils and slabs.
    • Focus on the potter’s wheel, learn to centre clay (the basis for all wheel throwing), form cylinders and other simple shapes.
    • Be introduced to glazing using Canberra Potters glazes.
    • Health and safety aspects of working with clay and pottery materials are covered during the course.
    • Receive a pottery toolkit and instruction booklet as part of their course.

Clay, glaze and firing of up to 13 items is included in your course fee.
