A five week fun block of pottery with experienced and enthusiastic young potter Chrissy. Runs for 5 weeks from Monday 19th September 9.30 – 12.00pm to 17th October. You will make for 3 classes depending on what you are doing and then glaze for 2 weeks. Depending on how complex the items are that you make and your skill level usually students create approx 4 things per session. This is for first time students and includes a 10kg bag of stoneware clay, tuition, glazes and firing costs. White clay can be purchased instead if you prefer for another $10 if prior notice is given. The total cost of the block class is $325.
You choose your own projects that you work on and we will support you to do so. We find that it’s more fun to be working on a project you have passion about so we will help guide you to make your own projects if they are within your skill level. You can learn different methods of hand building with pinch pots, slab work and the basics of joining pottery and using under glazes or pouring or dipping glazes. You can also learn to use the pottery wheel as well. You don’t need to be an artistic or creative person because Chrissy will help everyone to make pieces they are proud of and break your item down into easy steps. The class will only be a maximum of 7 students so that you get good time and attention to aid you.
