Get going on the wheel with this popular four-lesson beginner's wheel course. Learn the basic fundamental techniques to throw cylinders, cups and bowls. Our Beginner’s wheel course provides a solid foundation for working on the potterʼs wheel and is the perfect course if you want to have-a-go and see if this is for you. The duration of this course runs for four lessons over a five-week period. At week three, you will choose your favourite pieces to be bisque fired. Then a break of one week, so we can work our magic drying and bisque firing your chosen pieces ready for your return. After the break, the next lesson is glazing day, where you will learn how to apply glaze to finish your pieces, ready for the glaze firing. Glaze day is the final class in this course and begins half an hour earlier than the previous lessons from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm. • Tool use is provided for this class. • Clay is included in this class. Any additional clay needed will need to be purchased separately. • Firings are based on weight. A user-pays system, $10.00 per kilogram weight and payable before students collect their finished pieces. The firing fee is inclusive of bisque and glaze firing. Your throwing instructor for this lesson will be Melanie dos Remedios. Melanie is the Studio Black Clay Centre director and an exhibiting ceramic artist and practising potter under her own name. She is a committed educator who believes in sharing experience to create community: tertiary education, Ass Dip Arts - Fine Arts, Ass Dip Arts - Ceramics. *Please understand classes are small from limited wheel availability.
