Suitable for VERY beginners who have never done pottery before.
Venue: Julia’s studio, Pukerua Bay, Wellington.
Class outline: All beginners should learn the first 3 basic pottery techniques - pinch, slab and coil. This class starts from the very beginning and is a MUST for all beginners wanting to know the process and the basic techniques. We will cover the process from start to finish.
· Introductions, safety, theory, pottery process, cleaning.
· Pinch pots – bowl or cup
· Slab pottery – cup, planter, vessel.
· Coiling - plate/bowl
· Your child will use their pinch, slab and coiling knowledge to create their own idea and see it become a reality! I’ll have projects on hand if they’d prefer to do one of those.
FINAL WEEK – TBC – Once items have been bisqued I will be in touch for one final session so that your child can glaze their items!
