First time on the potters wheel

''This basic course is suitable for anyone who wants to test their skills on the wheel, for individuals and groups!''

Wheel Throwing

The sessions are divided into two ceramic working steps. In the first session, after a demonstration of the technique, you will shape your own pieces on the wheel. Our ceramist will actively support you in this process. Afterward, the ceramics must dry for at least 24 hours before they can finally be worked on. This means that the second session cannot take place on the same day, but ideally the following day, or in the course of the next five days. In the second session, the pieces are trimmed to achieve the final shape and surfaces are worked on. For example, by painting with a brush, pressing in stamps, carving or additions such as handles or feet. 

What you need to know

This basic course is suitable for anyone who wants to test their skills on the wheel and is available as  an individual or in a group of up to four participants. During the session, you will learn the basic skills of pottery making through your own hands-on time on the wheel.

You can also book a 2nd session to complete your pieces yourself. Please read the explanation of what this means exactly. The aim is to get a feel for the ceramic material, to live out hidden creativity, and to take home a ceramic piece you have made yourself at the end.  

What to wear for the course: Even though we provide you with apron and towel clothes that can get  dirty – this class is hands-on.   

The Workshop is paid in advance with additional Mwst. of 7.7%.
