Tutor: Anthony Brink
Intimate class size: maximum 10 students
For some, throwing clay on the potter's wheel is addictive. If you're one of those people, you've come to the right place.
Studio potter Anthony Brink will provide instruction for students wanting to master wheel-throwing techniques. He'll also teach advanced skills in hand building so you can refine and finish pots to an advanced standard.
Throughout this 8-week course, you'll learn how to identify a conceptual basis for your work so you can achieve specific design and aesthetic outcomes. Ceramic glaze making and the application and finishing of glazes will also play an integral part in the course. Some advanced hand building and mould making will be available after consultation with the tutor. Full instruction is provided on materials, products, tools, equipment and studio procedures.
At 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 intermediate to advanced students. You must have completed a previous course and have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of wheel work and hand building to attend this course.
Wear: comfortable clothing (aprons provided)
Bring: yourself - all materials provided
Next level class: Advanced or masterclass
Location: Pine Street Ceramics Studio
