6310405 Ceramics Beginner Course - New Course
Tutor: Nel Wilkinson
Location: Uppingham School
Have you watched the Great Pottery Throw Down and thought 'I’d like to try that’? If so, this is the course for you. Suitable for those who have tried pottery once or twice before or for anyone who has no experience at all, but just wants to give it a go.
This will be a fun and busy week trying your hand at throwing a cylinder on one of two wheels, slip casting, slab building and even glazing your final pieces. You will be able to collect your work on the following Monday after the final firing and will hopefully come away with several pieces of pottery to take home.
Our week will also include a visit to Goldmark Gallery’s famous pottery shop in Uppingham for inspiration and ideas.
All materials and tools will be included in this course, including clay, aprons, throwing batts, shaping tools, glazes, moulds etc. Please bring an old towel and wear clothes you don’t mind getting messy.
