Improve Your Throwing Skills (Saturdays)

Finn Anderson intadv

This is a great chance to develop your skills on the pottery wheel with an experienced tutor. Discover clay's unique properties, the specialist tools used for shaping and different ways to decorate and glaze pieces. Works will be fired in FAC's kilns.


  •  One bag of clay & a firing fee is included in the cost of the course

What to bring:-

  • Apron
  • Notebook & pen
  • Clay tools (if you have them)
  • An old towel
  • FAC provides 1 x bag of clay per student, students will be required to purchase further clay if needed
  • Closed footwear and appropriate clothing to be worn

Firing & Glazing:-

  • It is not always possible to fire and glaze all pieces made before the end of your course. The firing of each individual item is dependent on many factors including:– drying time, thickness, size, amount of work, when pieces are finished (i.e. towards the end of term the kilns are extremely full), and whether the pieces require bisque or glaze firing. We do our upmost to fire as much work as possible each week, however please bear in mind all of the above considerations. Please plan in advance if you would like to glaze in your final week of class.
  • Once fired, work is left on the collection shelves and an email sent out with collection times. It is the student’s responsibility to identify and collect their own work.
  • There are stand-alone glazing courses on offer each term if you would like to come back and finish your work another time.
