Throwing on the potters wheel

Saturday 11  to Friday 17 september  2021

For beginners and advanced
Teacher: Kees Agterberg

The week ends with a reduction glaze 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.
