HASCA Pottery

Homeschool Pottery Programme

After a successful term 2 programme (where students designed and created their own Greek Vase), the Homeschool Pottery Programme is returning in Term 3 with a fantastic new project.
The course will run over five sessions – fortnightly, in Bayswater, North Shore.
The class is coordinated by Miriam Koit and taught by tutors at Ceramic College.


About the Tutors:
Ceramic College is run by Teresa Watson and her daughters Latasha Wildman and Leisbeth Watson. Teresa is an award winning ceramic artist who has been teaching ceramics in the community for over 20 years. Her vision is to share the passion and love of clay with like minded people‚ and to inspire students in clay making through the classes that are held there.


In term 3, our home-schooled pottery students will create two pieces: a hand-made bowl and a mug, on the wheel, and finished by hand.
We will follow the whole process through, from wet clay construction, design and transfer, to final glazing.

Finished creations will be food-grade glazed and dishwasher safe.

What:
A five week educational pottery course for ages 5-years and up.
Learn new skills, terminology and techniques, and experience the joy of creating in clay alongside experienced tutors.

When:
Wednesdays mornings, 10:30am to 12:00 noon, commencing July 24th

Where:
Classes will take place at Ceramic College, 159 Bayswater Avenue, Bayswater, North Shore.
Ceramic College is an educational facility and pottery studio, and is the only facility on the North Shore that is set up purely for ceramics.
It is housed in the former beautiful Saint Michael’s Anglican church‚ still with its original furniture and church bell.

Course Dates:
Five sessions occurring fortnightly (every second Wednesday from July 24th)
