Course description

The Intensive Throwing course is designed to develop and hone your skills on the potter’s wheel at a rapid pace. If you have ever wanted to work on the potter’s wheel or want to expand your existing throwing skills, why not book a trial class, give it a go, and see if this course is for you? To book a trial class email info@kitestudios.org.

Dedicated you-time in our beautiful courtyard garden studio, to forget about the outside world and leave your worries behind. There is no time for your mind to wander, as throwing requires your focused attention. For anyone with a busy life, you will appreciate and love this mindful, restful and methodical way of working. Join our friendly, creative pottery community and meet others who share your interests and passion for ceramic art. An ideal creative outlet.

During this trial class beginner learners can expect to make a number of pieces on the potter’s wheel, learning the basic throwing techniques required to make a cylinder or bowl. The central focus of this course is to improve your throwing skills and facilitate the learning process, not to produce a large quantity of finished work. We work to an ethos supported by scientific and practical studies in the learning process to fast track you to success.

Experienced learners will be given individualised support in creating more complex and larger forms. Or you can opt to partake in our specialised exercises designed to help you learn skills fast! From the moment you come in, your skills will be on the fast track to improvement, enabling you to achieve your creative projects to a high standard.

Included in the price

The course price includes all your materials and firings, there is nothing further to pay. We provide all equipment and tools. Please note that you will be given your own tool kit for the duration of each class, however the tools are shared between classes. They are washed after each class with hot soapy water, but if you would prefer, you can also bring your own tools. We can recommend tool kits to purchase for throwing and trimming.

Covid safety

We ask everyone to use the hand sanitiser provided at the front door before entering the courtyard. Please bring your own hand towel and apron. All learners are asked to wear face coverings inside, unless they are exempt. If you are dropping off or collecting someone, due to social distancing measures, we ask that you wait in the street outside the studios.

We keep class sizes small to allow for social distancing. We trust that if any learner or anyone in their household is exhibiting symptoms of Covid 19 or has had a positive Covid test, the learner will not be attending. Please contact us if this is the case. It may be possible to re-arrange attendance for another class once the self isolation period is over.
