Course Description

One of the oldest and most challenging of all ceramic forming processes. Hollywood romanticism aside, it’s all you, and the feel-good exhaustion of having done something for yourself alone. Demonstrations in the basic principals of using the electric wheel for forming and finishing will be the focus throughout the term for absolute beginners. Each student has their own pace of learning, so the product you can expect will be based on your ability to grasp the mechanics. Demonstrations will also lead the beginner to the finish details of glazing.

This course is perhaps the most popular of all ceramics processes. However, If your goal is to achieve an excellent proficiency of this process, then be prepared for a long-term commitment and dedication to practice. If you’re just looking for some fun, then a taste of the process will be enough. Either way it’s a win-win.

Are you up for the challenge?
