Adult Classes

PSP Classes are suitable for both beginners and experienced potters.

Beginners are guided through the basics of various forms of ceramic work, according to their own interests. You can learn how to throw on a wheel, how to build with slabs, or coils; how to sculpt or slip cast. Guidance is given is the selection of clays and glazes and different forms of surface decoration are also covered in detail.  Creativity and experimentation are encouraged and classes are social, as well as learning experiences.

For more experienced potters, the support and guidance of a PSP teacher is a wonderful mentoring relationship, with advice for tricky technical questions and inspiration for creative projects. Students are encouraged to join PSP as full members as their personal creative practice improves, to allow for further experimentation and artistic growth.

Adult classes run in four terms per year, each term has eight classes. 

Fees per 8 classes 2015:  $185 for members, $210 non-members. This includes firing and glazing of the works made during class. Various clays can be purchased on site. Works made outside class can be fired for $1 per item or $2 for large items.

Class numbers are limited so that each student receives adequate attention. Enrolment gives preference to current students before opening for new students. All classes must be paid for in full before attending.

All teachers are qualified and fully committed to a personal art practice. 

Whether you are a beginner or have experience of working with clay our classes will help you gain more expertise and understanding of pottery.
