Build your basic throwing skills on this short course with our one of our resident potters, Simon Aubin. The course will run over three weeks and is aimed at people with some experience of clay and the potters wheel. Places are limited to a maximum of three people to allow for individual tuition.

During the first session you will learn to wedge, centre and throw cylinders of varying sizes. The second session will cover the skills you need to make open forms such as bowls and plates such as collaring and giving height, opening up and compression/flattening and you will learn to 'turn' and refine your leatherhard pots from the previous session. In the third session you will develop your skills further to create taller forms such as vases and bottles.
