At Little Bach Pottery you will learn the foundational skills to throw pots on the wheel. Focusing on technique, form & function rather than weekly object making.
Classes are suitable for beginner & intermediate Potters. You will receive one on one support and guidance with only 6 students per class.
Learn how to wedge, center and throw clay on the wheel, creating cylinders that transform into mugs with handles. At the end of the term you will glaze your creations.
Return to the pottery for another term and you will learn more advanced forms.
