6-week pottery wheel throwing course with Zahé Daw

Learn pottery wheel throwing in the cozy ceramics workshop in Vesterbro Bibliotek og Kulturhus

Who can join?

Everyone can join, whether it’s your first time or if you’ve tried wheel throwing before. We’ll go through all the
steps and help refine your technique from lump of clay to finished piece.
If this is your first time, you will be introduced to the basic elements of wheel throwing: clay preparation, centering, throwing and trimming. If you are experienced, you will be refining the basics for better control and be able to challenge yourself to create various forms. We will end the course by glazing our finished pieces.
