Service Description

The goal of this Intro to Clay class is to give you a taste of different ceramic techniques, including throwing on the potters wheel, hand building and glazing. Intro to Clay from Ceramics Collective Basel is a hands-on, four week ceramics course, intended to give you an overview of different ceramic construction methods, including throwing on the potters wheel, hand building and glazing. You will be introduced to the wheel and try throwing your own pots with the guidance of the experienced potter Meghan Howard and/or other Partners of the studio. During the course, we will also introduce different handbuilding techniques - slabs, pinch pots and coil construction. The final session will focus on glazing all of your pieces. Each class is three hours long, for a total of 12 hours of studio time. Finished work will be available for pick up about 2 to 3 weeks after the class' conclusion. The class fee of 350 CHF is for the 4 sessions and includes all materials, including up to 2.5 kg of clay, glaze and firing. This class is geared for adults. However, we will accept teenagers age 16 and up. This relatively small class has a maximum of 6 students. Join our most requested course and discover your new favorite hobby! If there is a waiting list, that means that the class session is currently full. We will contact you if a space opens up. Terms and conditions: The payment needs to be made online at the time of registering for the workshop. The registration is non-transferable and non-refundable owing to the limited number of seats available at each workshop.
