Wednesday Afternoon Wheelwork For Beginners and Improvers with Ian Gwynne – September 2022


This course takes place in our beautiful basement studio, in Moseley School of Art.

This SIX week course starts on Wednesday 7th September 2022, and will take place every Wednesday evening from 1.30 pm – 4.00 pm, on the following dates.

  • 7th September
  • 14th September
  • 21st September
  • 5th October
  • 12th October
  • 19th October


This course takes place over SIX weeks.  Each class runs for 2 1/2 hours.

During the course you will learn how to,  “wedge”/prepare the clay for throwing and throw pots on the potter’s wheel.  On the wheel you will learn centering, and then methods to make vessels.  You will also learn “turning”, the process of tidying up the base of your pots.   You will learn about surface decoration using coloured slips and various glazing techniques.  Throughout the course you will also learn “good studio practice”, the art of keeping your work area as clean/tidy as possible, thus, benefiting everyone.

Clay can be messy, so please dress for outdoor play.

Long nails can really inhibit your creativity with clay, so please do remember to trim them.

Bring a clean wipeable apron and an old hand towel to each class.

The last 20 minutes of each class is dedicated to cleaning up.


We take everyone’s health and safety very seriously!
