Beginners' Wheel-Throwing Weekend

10-11 February 2018

Sat 10-5  Sun 10-3:30

This two day class will give you a foundation for throwing on the potter's wheel in a small group of up to 4 people. Using ordinary stoneware clay you will be taken through the basics of throwing on Saturday and then turning on Sunday. This class is designed for people who have either never worked with the wheel before or have a little experience but would like to re-visit the basics. 

Jo Davies teaches all the classes at the studio so will be on hand in this small class to help you through. She is a highly experienced tutor who has taught at all levels - using the expertise gained in her professional practice she is able to give you an insight into the process as well as an insight into her own methods of working. 


What's included:

All materials

All tools and equipment are provided

Firing and glazing are included but you may want to glaze your work yourself so just let Jo know on the day.

Things to consider ahead of the day:

You may want to bring an apron

Wear clothes you don't mind getting splashed

Wear trousers

Arrive with short fingernails - this is very helpful when throwing and long fingernails can really get in the way of your enjoyment of the process.

Please plan your journey to the studio so you can arrive on time.

The Class will take place at the Jo Davies Studio at the Chocolate Factory, Farleigh Place, London, N16 7SX.   MAP
