Service Description

A 5 week course for students who want to learn how to throw pots on the wheel You will be making 4 pieces max per class each week. Classes taught with the careful, hands-on instruction and advice of a university trained and 18 year experienced teacher. Throwers are welcome, so log as they are competent as the class will be focussed on hand building and decoration. I love to work with different colour media and surface design and expand your knowledge of these. I encourage my students to experiment 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. COURSE PACKAGE: 2.5 Hour Classes Demonstrations and instruction from an established ceramic artist Access to expert advice via Wix or Facebook Slips, underglazes, glazes and stoneware firing included Space in the studio to leave your clay for the next week Opportunity to join The EPS Hands on Clay, pottery user's group (HUG) after 4 courses taken in the studio Clay is to be purchased separately on this website before class begins 1/2 bag of clay - £7 - £10 Full bag - £14 - £20 Purchase any clay you think you can work with.
