Evening class - Pottery

This is a bite-sized ceramics workshop focused on throwing (drejning). You will get to try how to create ceramics pieces using a potters wheel as well as some hand building techniques. Each participant will have their own wheel and table space; 1.5kg of clay will be included in the course fee, more can be purchased if desired. Leigh will finish your piece (trim, glaze, and two firings), and you can pick it up within a month.
