This is the course for you if you're never thrown on the wheel before or are still at beginner level and fancy throwing something new to elevate the table at your next dinner party. In this two hour workshop lead by our head potter, Mathew Dimbleby, you will learn to centre the clay on the wheel and how to produce forms of even thickness, before moving on to creating two same sized dipping bowls, perfect for dips and olives. Once you have achieved the correct shape and are happy with what you have produced, it will be time to get the paint brushes out to decorate your bowl with underglaze colour whilst the clay is still wet. Your final step in getting creative. Post lesson both bowls will be dried out in our studio before going through a double firing process. The first firing process is the biscuit firing to 1000oc before being glazed with a food safe, lead-free glaze and fired again to 1120oc. Your bowls will be ready to collect in approximately 2-3 weeks after your lesson. This class runs once a month on a Tuesday evening 6pm to 8pm or Thursdays 2:30pm to 4:30pm, however if you are interested in this class and can't make it on the dates available, please contact us via email@example.com or ring us on 07900582268 and we will try our best to accommodate you.
