Throwing on the potters wheel

Sunday 5 to Saturday 11 July 2020

For beginners and advanced
Teacher: Kees Agterberg

Throwing on the potters’ wheel is the central objective during this week.
Part of the work will also be glazed and the week will finish with a reduction firing.

During the course weeks we will be working with the very plastic stoneware clay Grés.

Beginners learn the basic techniques of how to prepare, center and pull up the clay – as well as finishing the pieces by trimming. The bowl shape and the cylinder will be the starting points.

With advanced students we’ll discuss and develop new techniques and we’ll work, for example, on composite shapes such as jugs, teapots, jars with lids.
