Ceramics - At the Wheel and Hand-building

8 x Mondays, 10 October - 28 November

9:30am - 12pm

Tutor: Anthony Brink

Intimate class size: maximum 10 students

Discover the earthy passion of ceramics in this 8-week Monday morning course for beginners and continuing students.

Clay is a fascinating material. A lump on a spinning wheel formed by your own hands can become a useful and beautiful work of art.

Ceramics is a sensual, messy and satisfying experience. Studio potter Anthony Brink will help you learn the basics so that you can construct symmetrical ceramic forms at the wheel and more organic forms by hand.

Throughout this comprehensive introductory 8-week course, you'll create functional and decorative objects like bowls and pots, that are a pleasure to hold, look at and use. You'll learn elementary hand building and throwing, pressing and coiling as well as how to apply slips, glazes, and other surface treatments to make your handiwork shine.

Full instruction is provided on materials, products, tools, equipment and studio procedures.

Following the end of the course, your fired work will be available for collection so you can show-off your creations.  Each student will have their own wheel.

Level: designed for complete beginners as well as enthusiasts who have some experience

Wear: comfortable clothing (aprons provided)

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 Ceramic Studio
