3 Day Throwing Course

Jim Firing his kiln

Jim Firing his kiln

11-13 September 2017,  10am-4pm

Held in the original throwing room of the Leach Pottery, you will enjoy the experience of working on the Leach Pottery's historic kick wheels.

Designed for throwers who can throw a bowl and a basic cylinder and would like to get to the next level, you will revisit familiar forms and develop them to a higher level.

Selection and discussion will form a significant part of the course - one pot will be chosen to be fired in our gas-fired reduction kilns and be returned at a later date.

Maximum number of students: 5
Cost: £300 to include all materials.
