Wheel throwing for Beginners- Thursday evening workshops.

 

Thursday evenings 6-8.30pm.

 

Explore a range of organic materials and work your way towards the creation of your own vessels in a relaxed and inspiring environment with Ceramic Artist Fiona Cuthbert O'Meara. During this 5 week course for beginners you will explore a comprehensive series of Wheel Throwing techniques to get you up and running on the pottery wheel. 

 

In this class you will learn to feel your way, centre, take notice, grow, learn basic skills and decide whether you want to move in a functional or sculptural direction (or explore both). No prior experience is necessary and all clay, tools and equipment are provided for the duration of the workshops. Includes Bisque firing.

Wheel throwing can be both grounding and cathartic as you tap into your own

inner artist, shaping and allowing and connecting to earth through the clay.
