Event Details

Discover a traditional art form in this 8-week Tuesday evening course for beginners and continuing students.

Ceramics - Art of the Ancient Vessel

8 x Tuesdays, 2 May - 20 June 2017

6:30pm - 9pm

Tutor: Cita Daidone

Intimate class size: maximum 10 students

In designing vessels to serve everyday needs, ancient cultures created some of the most lasting forms of pottery.

In this 8-week introductory course studio potter Cita Daidone will provide instruction on the ancient tradition of handmade pinch pots and coil forms made from ropes of rolled clay. She'll also teach you the basic techniques involved in wheel throwing including correct posture, centering, opening the form, wheel speed, turning, and finishing the form.

Experimenting with clay tools to smooth, decorate, join and burnish your clay forms, you'll also have the opportunity to learn about the application of slips, underglazes, glazes, sgraffito and the use of oxides.

At the end of the course, you'll have made a series of hand built and wheel thrown forms. Each student will have their own wheel.

Level: This course is designed for complete beginners as well as continuing students. A formal course structure is provided for beginners while more experienced students may pursue a personal direction.

Wear: comfortable clothing (trousers recommended). Please bring your own apron and towel.

Bring: yourself - all materials provided

Next level class: It is recommended students complete at least two beginner classes before considering more intermediate to advanced levels. Please discuss with your tutor.

Location: Pine Street Ceramics Studio

About our tutor: For over 20 years Cita has worked as an arts educator teaching in a variety of schools including St Patrick's College and William Clarke College. Cita teaches drawing, collage, printmaking, sculpture, painting and art appreciation. As a ceramics tutor, Cita encourages her students to express their creative dreams through the material of clay. Her own work is organic in theme and explores natural objects she sees in the world around her. Her work can be found in the Journal of Australian Ceramics.
