Lesson Time: 6.30pm-8.30pm
Teacher: Xanthe Maggs
This 2 hour session is a fun, interactive start to the pottery wheel. You will be taught how to prepare, centre and throw a couple of simple shapes on the wheel such as a cylinder and a bowl which are the most important shapes to learn when first starting out.
There will only be 3 participants in this lesson making it feel more like a private tuition class as opposed to a large group.
An email will be sent out to you after booking with more information on what to bring and wear to the session. Most importantly, long nails need to be cut!
This session is mainly aimed at beginners but if you have worked on the wheel before, it is a great way to learn new techniques.
3 pieces will be kept from this session. 15-30 minutes before the lesson finishes will be spent cleaning your wheel. You will then be shown five glazes for you to choose for your pieces. After your lesson, your work will be trimmed, glazed and fired which may take up 3-4 weeks to complete. You will then be able to collect your pieces from my studio.
Your work will go through two firings. The first firing will reach 1000 degrees and the second will reach 1240 degrees in my electric kiln.
All materials, tuition, glazes, x2 kiln firings are included within this price.
