Description

The potter's wheel is one of the ancient techniques of ceramics and allows you to create concentric and symmetrical shapes using a rotating base. In this potter's wheel workshop, each participant will have their own electric wheel so you can learn how to center and shape different forms on the wheel.

Practical exercise

In this potter's wheel workshop, the shape of the pieces is directly linked to the type of techniques we'll be covering and means that at the end* you'll take with you four pieces ready to use, i.e. fired and glazed.
