Service Description

This is a 6 weeks course consisting of various advanced techniques and tips for people who have had experience on the potters wheel and have worked with clay. This is a recommended follow-up course to our beginners course. Please note that we will be working exclusively with the potters wheel and our main focus will be on throwing, surface decoration techniques and glazing techniques. The twelve sessions are spread across 6 weeks, two session per week and each session is of 2 hours long. Wheel throwing: You will be taught how to create complex and difficult shapes (for eg, tea pots, lids, bottleneck etc...) on the wheel. Along side, you will also be learning how to centre and work with one kilo or more clay on the wheel. You will also get to learn how to throw set of mugs or bowls. Textures and surface decorations : You will get to learn various carving and surface decoration techniques that would help you to alter the looks of wheel thrown pots. Glazing : Glazes can make or break your pieces, so in glazing, we will learn about how glazes influence the over all look of your ceramic product. we will also dwell into the suitable and non suitable glazes for a particular piece depending on size, shape and texture of a pot. Experimenting with various glaze application techniques will also be covered in this course. As we will be working with bigger amounts of clay, the first 5 pieces will be glazed and fired at no extra cost. The subsequent pieces will be charged extra for firing and glazing, depending on the size of the piece.
