Wanstead Pottery: Throwing on the Wheel (adult)
Welcome to Wanstead Pottery. A calm and inviting space for you to explore the marvellous medium of clay.
Have fun experimenting with form, texture and decorative techniques and create something you will cherish with this natural, tactile and versatile material.
Taster sessions are a fun way to introduce yourself to clay.
In this introductory class you will be guided through the basics of throwing clay on the potters wheel.
These classes feature a maximum of 3 students. You will be taught how to prepare your clay, how to centre it on the wheel, how to pull up the walls and create form and how to use the tools provided.
You will keep your best thrown pot from the session. After it has become leather hard (3 or 4 days later) the piece will be finished and subsequently fired and glazed for you.
There will be the opportunity to choose a glaze from the select range of studio dipping glazes.
Once your piece has completed its second firing and is ready for collection you will be notified by email, approximately 6 to 8 weeks later.
The price includes all materials used during the session Aprons will be provided. Please wear old clothing and shoes!
A welcome email will be sent with further information ahead of your class.
