7 Week Throwing Course
A 7-evening introduction to the craft of throwing on the potters’ wheel. Learn about this meditative process used for millennia to create everyday objects as well as once-off pieces of art. Discover the steps behind making beautiful pottery and follow the lifecycle of a humble lump of clay from design to a finished piece.
In a small class you will learn how to work with clay and realise your designs from 2D to 3D. We will cover the whole process from a single lump of clay through throwing, to drying and firing and glazing your own work. You will gain a basic understanding of the process behind throwing on the potters’ wheel.
Participants will also have access to the studio during opening hours to practice between each class if they wish.
Location: Arran Street East, 1 Little Green Street, Dublin 7
