weekend wheel course

On two  days we will dive into the world of pottery. In a total of 7 hours we throw the first cups and bowls on the wheel and trim and decorate them the next day. On the 2nd day I will also introduce you to the world of glazing with a cup or bowl that I have thrown and already fired.

Your pieces will be fired and glazed by me.

Your pieces will be ready for pickup approximately 3 weeks after the course or will be sent for an additional charge

 

Course price including materials  (max. 6 self-made pieces + glazed cup/bowl: 230 euros

2 days wheelcourse. On two dates we will throw our first pieces together on the potter's wheel in a small group (max. 3 participants) and in a relaxed atmosphere. Course duration: a total of 7 hours over 2 days. Price 230 euros including material and 2 firings. Day 1: In about 3 hours I'll show you how you can create your first small bowls from a lump of clay. We prepare the clay together and then create our first small works of art on the glass. I'll show you different types of techniques and tools and provide advice as you immerse yourself in the world of tone and flow for the first time. Day 2: On day 2 we are trimming the pieces. Now the later shape really emerges; a handle could also attached during this step. Afterwards and after a short break, I will introduce you to the world of glazing. You will receive a piece (cup or mug) that I have previously thrown and glaze it yourself in your desired color. A selection of Sia Noire glazes is available. The second appointment lasts about 4 hours. Your thrown pieces now have to dry for 10-14 days and will then be glazed and fired by me and sent to you for a postage fee. Optional: You are from the region or have enough time. You can glaze your pieces yourself and pick them up about 10 days after the course. Who is the workshop suitable for? The workshop is aimed at anyone who has always wanted to try out the material clay. I accompany beginners through their first steps at the wheel and we create their first works for your home. But even if you've made pottery before, I'd be happy to teach you new techniques to center it more easily and throw it higher. Where does this all take place? The workshops take place in my studio in Brittany, France: 538 Ar Gozhkêr Boden, 22110 Rostrenen Anything else? Please remember to wear clothing that can get dirty. I provide the apron and towels. And another tip: with short fingernails it's easier to turn at the beginning. cancellation: By booking a course you agree to the following policies: If the participant cancels, there will be no refund, but a course voucher for a later workshop, if available. Missed individual sessions of a course that has been started are non-refundable.
