Wednesday Variety with Sarah + Monika
This five week pottery course gives you the full pottery experience! Learn how to throw on the wheel, hand-build, and decorate pottery. Great for all experience levels!
So you want to play with mud? Get your feet wet, or should we say your hands dirty, in the art of pottery. Clay is fun, versatile and limitless to what you can make!
This class covers it all - technical skills, creative exploration, one-on-one learning, plus independent project time. You'll be amazed at what you can accomplish!
Week 1: Throw! Take it from us: Throwing is fun! So we make sure everyone gets their own wheel and jumps right in on the first night. Our instructor will teach you the basics for throwing bowls, mugs and plates. You will spend a solid 3 hours making pots (and sometimes "whatnots")!
Week 2: Sculpt! Learn how to make mugs and vessels using hand-building techniques. Our instructor will teach you how to work from a slab to build beautifully textured mugs (or anything else you can imagine!)
Week 3: Project Night! We open up the studio for you to tackle any project you like! Everything will be up for grabs - whether you want to try the wheel again or work from a slab. Heck, sculpt a bust if you'd like! Our instructor will be available to answer any questions and guide you in the right direction if you get stuck.
Week 4: Decorate! Learn how to give your pottery the wow-factor, using surface techniques to achieve patterns and graphic images using underglaze and image transfers. You will be decorating directly on to all the work you've made in class up to this point.
Week 5: Glaze! The best part, in our opinion. Choose from our selection of in-house glazes and commercial glazes, with lots of colours to choose from.
Includes everything: clay, glazes, and firings. All you have to bring is your creativity!
