Pottery - Handbuilding Basics

Learn how to prepare and alter clay. (Held at Wellington Potters' Association, 130 Grant Road, Thorndon).


Learn how to prepare and alter clay:  pinch, coil, slab, extruder and roller use.  Understand shrinkage and clay care, joining techniques, drape and press moulding, mark making, slip making and application - as well as tetrahedron, cone and cylinder production.

The emphasis will be on learning techniques and honing those skills but, by the end of the 8 sessions you will have completed three works which will be fired and glazed.
