Thursday Evening Throwing for Improvers with Austin Gannon June 2021


This course is for people who have prior experience in throwing.
During the course we will explore methods for achieving larger pots for your preferred throwing style.  Austin will suggest tweaks, to improve your technique, as well as the proper preparation of clay.  Enabling you to produce larger pots with larger amounts of clay.

With improved technique we will also look at composite working and sectional throwing.


There is a member’s discount of 20% for this course.  If you are a member, please contact to request an invoice. 

Pots that students wish to keep, are paid for by weight.  This cost includes two firings and also covers the cost of glaze materials.
The course runs on the following dates :-
  • 24th June
  • 1st July
  • 8th July

Pottery is a messy business.  Please remember to bring a clean wipe-able apron, and a small hand towel with you to each session.  Also, please remember to trim your nails, as long nails can really inhibit your learning with clay.


The last 20 minutes of each session are dedicated to cleaning up.
