6 week intermediate wheel course: Tuesday nights January 30th- March 5th
Regular price $436.39
Tuesday nights, 5.30-8.00pm
- 6 week term, running from Tuesday 30th January to Tuesday 5th March
Small class = one on one attention! Throwing on the wheel is a real challenge. The intimate class size of only four students at a time ensures that you won’t get left behind and can ask lots of questions and get plenty of one-on-one time
- Learn at your pace Instead of a cookie-cutter approach, the pace is led by each individual and will cater to your level! The flexibility of a small group allows us to change the course content as needed so that everyone is challenged at an achievable rate and never overwhelmed.
- Sustainability Snakebird Designs is focused on reducing our environmental impact as potters. In 2024, all studio glazes will be made with second life or “waste” materials, so your pots can be more connected to where they are from and reduce the inclusion of virgin mined materials! Sarah utilises every opportunity to share her learnings about more ecologically responsible practices with you!
- Flexibility Don’t feel like you’re being pushed out the door- the longer class times of 2.5 hours allows for enough time to get settled, watch a demo and get plenty of hands on time before packing down, and you’ll always be encouraged to finish the pot you’re working on without having to rush out at 8 on the dot!
- Stay in touch! Once you finish the course, you’re welcome to contact Sarah with questions as you continue your pottery journey- she’d much prefer you feel confident and equipped to continue safely and have fun.
