Service Description

An 8 week course for students who want to learn the basics of wheel throwing and those who want to improve skills. Classes taught with the careful, hands-on instruction and advice of a university trained and 18 year experienced teacher. You will learn how to throw on the wheel and/or improve your throwing technique as well as experiment with slips, underglazes and glazes. I love to work with different colour media and surface design. I encourage my students to do the same and have equipped The EPS with underglazes, slips, oxides and glazes to allow for a wide range of choices for decorating your work. I have been throwing for 30 years and learned many skills along the way that I will share with you to ensure that you succeed in this class and leave with pieces that you are proud of.
