Develop a personal way of finishing pieces looking at rims and feet/surface and throwing marks/using tools.

Design and perfect making a teapot or any chosen form, set or range.

Throw and adapt forms, joining thrown shapes together.

Focus on mastering throwing with Porcelain.

Focus on working with larger amounts of clay.

Practice throwing and stretching the clay, texturing the clay on the wheel.

We would aim to get a group of pieces glazed and fired for a presentation, but that wouldn’t be the priority.  Students could use our glazes or bring in their own. 

Please keep your eyes peeled for future updates, as I’ll aim to keep you all up to speed with our plans.
