Colchester Pottery Throwdown Courses

Mixed-Ability Pottery Throwdown Course

This six week course is aimed primarily at those who have some experience of ceramics.

Though beginners are also welcome they should be aware that this course is not as structured as the Beginner’s course and runs with students carrying out a range of different processes and techniques. Within that more flexible structure there is both the opportunity for one to one tuition and group demonstrations enabling participants to explore a range of techniques and materials.

During the programme participants are supported to develop personal responses through processes including; Throwing, Pinching, Coiling, Slab building, Casting, Decorative techniques and Tile making.
