    In this 8 week after-school workshop, kids will learn the fundamentals of ceramic wheel-throwing.

    Under the guidance of our experienced tutor, students will use the potter’s wheel to make simple cylindrical forms, bowls and plates with white raku clay.

    They’ll also experiment with surface treatments like brushing on clay slips and glazes.

    Students will also get a good understanding of the properties and limits of the material and ideas and thoughts behind the creative process.

    This workshop is designed for complete beginners as well as kids with some experience who are looking to improve their skills and gain a solid foundation in wheel-throwing.

    Works will be fired and ready to collect approximately 4 weeks after the workshop.

    This workshop will use 100% reclaimed clay from the ceramics studio. All brush on glazes and dipping glazes are handmade on site.
