Pottery Wheel Course

Would you like to learn pottery on the potter’s wheel in a short time? In these intensive courses you will learn how to center, break up and pull up the clay on the potter’s wheel. Then you design your own works of art according to your ideas.

You learn to center the clay on the potter’s wheel, then you break up the clay and form the ground. They learn to pull up the clay on the potter’s wheel and form a cylinder. From this form can then make various other forms. The vessel is later turned off in leather hard condition and then dried. After the raw firing, I show you how to apply the glaze and what to look for when glaze firing.
