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

Erin graduated from the ANU School of Art Ceramics Department in 2011. As an artist she likes to make highly patterned objects, both functional and non-functional. Her works are recognisable by the linear pattern that she employs. The quality of the linear pattern can be organic or constructed; often she places the two alongside each other in contrast. The objects often flaunt an optical display of balance and tension.

Erin joined Canberra Potters teaching staff in 2016.
