INTRO TO WHEEL WORKSHOP

I am super stoked that you wanna play with clay with me!  This course is an introduction to clay.   

Four weeks will be spent learning the basics and foundations of body posture, hand position, centering and moving the clay and just getting your hands dirty! The fifth week will be the week to sand, prep your pieces for glazing and glaze.

This class focuses on building skills but also has space for you to put your creativity to the test and add decoration and whatever you have your mind set on.  Bring your ideas and I will help you carry them out

COST : $395 + gst= $414.75

NEXT STEPS WHEEL WORKSHOP

 

The class is only for people who have taken an intro class.   I do not teach the basics of centering in this class as it is expected you have experience so that the nature of the class is for progressing your skills.  Please come with a ceramic goal in mind - do you want to throw something big or something narrow or a specific item.  I want you to reach your goal and we will practice all the skills to get everyone to their goal.

1x a week for 5 weeks/  3 hour sessions

NEXT SESSION will be postponed to incorporate an additional beginner wheel

 

 

Wheel Rental is here !

I have set up a few wheels for my past and current students (who have taken a minimum of 2, five week sessions with me) to come and practice their skills. 

This is a fully INDEPENDENT session where you will be 100% on your own to play, no instruction is given.

The best way to learn is practice and feel, less thinking. You must be 100% confident working independently through all the steps of throwing and be extremely diligent with clean up
