This course takes students through a range of techniques for working with clay.
This Weekly Course is the same curriculum as the INTENSIVE COURSE.
The course takes students through a range of techniques for working with clay.
  • students get a feel for clay and its properties through various handbuilding techniques and projects
  • introduction to glazing
  • focus on the potter’s wheel, learning to centre clay (the basis for all wheelthrowing) and form cylinders and other shapes
  • work produced during weeks so far is glazed ready for final firing.
  • a raku firing takes place when students will see some of their pots go through the raku rapid firing process. This is weather dependant and may not happen in very hot or high fire danger conditions.
Health and safety aspects of working with clay and pottery materials are covered during the course.

About the teacher

Anna is a ceramic sculptor whose focus lies in the creation of anthropomorphic creatures that blur the boundaries of human, animal and machine. Her contemporary sculptures embody human characteristics, each with their own personality. They are cartoon-like, comical and playful. In 2015 she graduated from the ANU with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Ceramics and in 2016 was awarded a residency with Canberra Potters and started working with us shortly after.
