Course Overview

Learning to throw clay on the potter’s wheel is a skill that requires focus and persistence, so a five-day intensive course is an excellent way to begin this exciting journey! Linda Seiffert provides daily demonstrations of all the foundation skills including how to centre the clay, lift, shape and trim the form. She gives you plenty of time to develop your techniques and build confidence with guided practices and one-to-one tuition. You will have the opportunity to make cups, bowls, jugs and vases, and stretch your new skills to explore sculptural forms – working between the wheel and hand building techniques. You will then personalise your pieces with coloured slip decorative techniques to finish the week.
All clay is provided, and selected works will be bisque fired and collected at a later date.
