POTTERY TRIAL CLASS
Our trial classes are suitable for anyone with or without prior experience with clay.
Structured to allow participants an experience of SO-CA's teaching style and learning environment, we hope to encourage a deeper appreciation of pottery and its associated skills from a craft perspective through experiential learning.
This intensive workshop will be challenging. We aim to provide an honest overview of the demanding nature of our craft alongise studio pottery practices - especially the multifarious processes that has to occur before raw materials can be transformed into a ceramic work.
You are encouraged to book at least a week in advance. Do drop us a note at below and we will inform you of our upcoming availability.
** Pots need not be collected as we will be employing courier services to deliver the works 1-2 months after the workshop. Participants will be informed when the pots are shipped out.
In this class, participants will be taught to create vessels by throwing off the hump - a method commonly employed by artisanal pottery - through a mix of demonstrations and hands-on try-outs.
Thereafter, each participant will get to work independently on 2.5kg of prepared clay on their personal potter's wheel. Our classes are structured to encourage personal discovery through doing.
Fees include firing charges for 2 choice items and local postage charges.
** Our Instructor for the Potter's Wheel Class is unavailable from 2nd October - 12th November 2017. We can only accept students before or after the above-mentioned dates.
Participants will be guided on employing the banding wheel and molds that can allow for plate-making or asymmetrical dishes - objects that cannot be achieved on the potter's wheel.
The banding wheel allows for much better control as compared to the potter's wheel hence allowing participants to achieve their ideal shapes more easily.
Good form and finish will be the main focus for our handbuilding trial class.
Fees include charges for 1 choice item and local postage charge.
