Pottery - Handbuilding Basics

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

Description

Please note you must show proof of double Covid vaccinations when entering the pottery premises.

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.
