If you’ve recently joined as a member and would like to start using the studio, this course will teach you the basics of making with clay.
Over three consecutive Sundays you will learn:
How to throw simple shapes on the pottery wheel.
How to use the extruder, the slab roller and other equipment.
Some hand building techniques.
About different clays, firing temperatures and which glazes go with which clays.
You will also get to glaze some of your pieces and these will be fired for picking up at a later date. Most importantly you will learn where things are and how things work at the Auckland Studio Potters centre.
Members price includes membership fee and a discount on the class fee. After this course members are allowed to use the facilities of the centre week-day afternoons and Saturdays. Non-members are welcome to apply for this class but our facilities after the course are limited to member use only.
Priority will be given to new members for this class.
Members $150 (includes membership fee & course fee) Non-members $120 (course fee only)
