Get stuck into wheel throwing in The Creative Campus with this six-week series. Learn all the basic clay and wheel techniques and get to know the necessary pottery tools and equipment to perfect the craft!
Each week Sophie will demonstrate different techniques on and off the wheel – from storage and wedging to turning and pulling cups, bowls, plates, handles and spouts! Once participants have a range of pieces they’re happy with, Sophie will introduce students to the glazing and firing process.
At the end of the series, the last week will be a gathering for participants to debrief and exhibit their work to their friends and family!
Spaces are limited, so get in quick!
Sophie Evans, a past resident artist of the Pot House, here at the Incubator, is both a hand sculpting and wheel throwing potter and tutor. You can find her work on display and for sale in the Pot House. She says – ‘I have enjoyed clay for as long as I can remember. I have played around with different mediums, but nothing has captivated me as much as clay. I went to Whitecliffe Art School, where I studied for a Diploma in Art and Design. During this time at Whitecliffe, we explored clay and I expressed how much I would love to work in ceramics. I spent four years working towards my Ceramic Diploma in the Waikato. My style and signature look are very fluid with an organic and naturalistic feel, which you will see reflected in how I have set up my workspace (the curves in flax, water, pods and driftwood you will see come through in the ceramic vessels I make).’
