Have you ever wanted to throw a pot on a pottery wheel?

Join this weekly class and learn the fundamentals of pottery, including hand building coil bowls, slap texture vase, slab trivet, hand built mug, slab built money box, wheel thrown bowl, and wheel thrown mug, including decoration, firing, glazing and finishing.

Each lesson will begin with a demonstration by experienced tutor Kerrie Docker, following which each student will break out into workstations to learn and master the various stages of pottery production. All students will spend time on the pottery wheels, as well as working on individual hand built projects utilising slab and coil construction. 

In the first six weeks of term, each student will complete a hand built project and wheel thrown pot each class. In the final four weeks of term, projects will be painted, decorated and glazed, ready to take home.

Course fee includes all materials and equipment.

Meet the Tutor: Kerrie Docker

Portrait of artist Kerrie Docker

Kerrie fell in love with ceramics at Secondary School and followed her passion into an Arts degree majoring in Ceramics at Bendigo College of Advanced Education in the late 1980's.

While inspired by many great international potters, including the English Masters, Kerrie's main influences have been people that she has worked with personally in the local area. 

She has been producing Tableware, Exhibition pieces and Commissions since 1990 and continues to grow and refine her technique with each new project. She is particularly drawn to wheel thrown work and enjoys creating functional items that have great line, lift and balance. Kerrie has also delved into sculptural work, murals and tiling.

Kerrie's studio is a century old shearing shed on her family's farm. It is here that she disappears into her creative world and emerges with unique pieces that are in her distinct style.
