For Advanced Course description → HERE

The philosophy behind this course is to develop students’ skills and confidence in the relaxed and warm atmosphere of our beautiful Prague studio.

During the course there will be instruction in clay preparation, centering, throwing various forms and trimming. You will be given thorough guidance to get most out of the clay with a focus on efficiency and precision at the wheel. 

Even though you will be following a dedicated step by step program, your teacher always remains flexible to each person’s area of interest (if someone really enjoys making mugs and another really enjoys making bowls, vases, etc, both will have the space conducive to focus and relaxation)

During your course you will learn to make bowls, cups, vases, plates and more!
