JULY 4 Week course- Breakfast tableware

2 SPACES LEFT

  • 300 British pounds

Service Description

This 4 week course (2 hours per session) will guide you through techniques on how to make 2 small coffee mugs and 2 small breakfast bowls. I will only be teaching 3 students at a time so this class is more of a one -to -one tuition with me which means you will get lots of guidance throughout. Please note that I will need to have at least 2 people on this course to teach so if you have booked and no one else has, I will let you know in advance to rearrange for the following month. 1.5 hours will be spent at the wheel and 15-30 minutes will be spent cleaning the wheel at the end of the session and reflecting on what we have made during the class. Week 1: Learn how to prepare clay before starting on the wheel. You will also learn a few basic throwing techniques and will practice these throughout this first session. No work will be kept in this session. Week 2: The cylinder project. Learn how to make a group of cylinders with set dimensions from Melisa. We will work on technique and repetition. Week 3 : Learn how to make simple shapes for 2 cups and a 2 breakfast bowls. Week 4 : Turning. Finish off your pieces by using trimming tools to shape the sides and bases. This course will not cover glazing. After your 4th session your work will go into the kiln for its first firing. Melisa will then glaze your pieces for you and fire them at their final firing of 1240 degrees in her electric kiln. There will be a selection of glazes to choose from. If you are interested in glazing your pieces yourself , this can be arranged in a separate session. All materials, plus 2 kiln firings are included in the price. After this course, you will definitely be equipped with the fundamentals of how to prepare, centre, throw and Turn on the wheel.
