Description du service

A weekend of concentration, fun, clay-mess, centering, trial and error and forgetting everything else on the planet ! "Throwing" (the verb of using the potter's wheel ) is a technique that requires time and practice to master. This intro course will give you the fundamental information and beginners practice to start you off on your throwing journey. The first half of the initiation will focus how to wedge your clay to extract air bubbles, centering it on the wheel and learning how to make the beginning of all shapes : the cylinder ! The second half you shall learn how to trim the pieces upside-down, to create the 'foot' or 'bum' of your pot, making ribbons of clay fly away. By following this course, you become part of our Mud Gang community and are welcome to continue practicing to throw during our weekly opening hours for members if a wheel is available for booking. Price: *The price includes all the clay and the firings. *You can glaze your work 10 or so days after the course when bisque fired, during your member's hours. If you have not yet glazed in our studio, you shall need to sign up to one of our once a month intro to glazing classes (50€ for 3h). Small group: The intro course welcomes max 5 participants at once. We will be a warm little gang of 10 hands. Terms and conditions : ** If you are not able to complete your work to the detail you would like during the course hours, you can continue working on your pieces during our member opening hours by booking a potter's wheel per hour. This is not included in the pack of the course. ** Course refundable 2 weeks in advance (minus 5€ booking fee) ** Course refunded by 50% (minus booking fee) if cancelled less than 2 weeks before the start of the course, unless a replacement is found by you or us ** Course not refundable less than 1 week before the course starts unless a replacement is found by you
