Service Description

A 5 week course for students who want to learn how to make teapots. We will throw two-three bases, 4 spouts and 3 lids over two weeks, trim and assemble in week three then add slips or carve them in week 3/4. Week 5, should be glazing. 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, as well as experiment with slips, underglazes and glazes. FOR STUDENTS WITH WHEEL EXPERIENCE ONLY 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 and hand building for 20 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.
