8-week// Pottery Intensive classes

8-week Wheel Throwing class

The wheel classes are available to all skill levels. All our classes are small enough to allow for individual attention and our teachers and more than happy to provide it! There is no lock-step curriculum. While the instructor demonstrates a wide-variety of techniques, the choice of projects is dependent upon the interest and ability of the individual. We begin by mastering simple shapes such as cylinders (cups and mugs), bowls and vases. When shapes are leather hard the student will trim their pieces on the wheel or by hand. When the piece is dry, our technitians bisque fire the pieces and in the final two weeks the students paint their items. Items may be functional, fanciful, decorative, artful, or any combinations of these qualities! 

8-week Handbuilding Class

Hand-building classes are taught to all levels. Pinch-pots, coiled pots, and slab-built work are all taught and their techniques are combined to create original and unique masterpieces. A broad spectrum of glazes are available to the hand-builder. Students will learn to create bowls, mugs, platters, plates, vases, wall plaques, jewellery and a variety of other sculptures. The instructor begins each week with a handbuilding demonstration teaching important techniques which students will apply when building their creations. What the student makes is entirely up to them and their imagination!
