If you've ever wanted to try your hand at pottery but didn't know where to start, Stone Studio's Beginner Wheel Throwing Pottery Course might be just what you need. The six-week course is designed to teach you the basics of wheel throwing, trimming, and glazing, so that you can create your own unique pieces of pottery.

The course is offered at both our Currumbin Waters and Kingscliff studios, so you can choose the location that's most convenient for you. This also means you will be one of the first people to see our brand new studio! Each session is led by an experienced instructor who will guide you through the process of creating your very own masterpiece.

 

What will I learn in a Beginner Wheel Throwing Course at Stone Studio?

 

What will I learn?

The first few weeks of the course will focus on the basics of wheel throwing. You'll learn how to centre the clay on the wheel, how to pull up the sides to create a cylinder, and how to shape the clay into different forms. The instructors will be there every step of the way to offer guidance and advice, so don't worry if you've never done this before.

Once you've mastered the basics of wheel throwing, you'll move on to trimming your pieces. Trimming is the process of removing excess clay from the bottom of your piece, creating a foot or base that will allow it to stand on its own. This step is essential to ensure that your creation is balanced and stable.

Finally, you'll move on to glazing your pieces. Glazing is the process of applying a liquid coating to the surface of your pottery to create a smooth, glossy finish. You'll learn different glazing techniques, and have the opportunity to experiment with different colours to create a unique look for your piece.
