Learn the foundations of the pottery wheel for beginners, in this six-day introductory course in Collingwood Melbourne. You'll enter the exciting world of wheel throwing and take home beautiful finished ceramics at the end.

With the guidance of our experienced instructors, you will learn the basics of ceramics in an encouraging environment, starting with a broad slab of clay and progressing through to a finished piece of work. In the course you will learn how to wedge, centre, form vessels on the wheel and finish pieces by trimming, decorating and glazing. You will also be introduced to the basics of ceramics theory and good studio practice (including OH and S guidelines).

During this course, we will focus on making functional ware such as cups, bowls and vases. You will take home all the pieces. This introductory workshop is intentionally limited to eight participants, allowing for lots of individual tuition.

After completing the course, you have the chance to continue making work in our self-guided open studio sessions with the option of getting your ceramic pieces fired in our kilns.


Knowledge Required

What you'll get
