Throwing Course with Sabine Nemet

Thursday 8th August – Sunday 11th August 2024

Timings: 9.30am to 5pm

I offer a 4 day, practice based throwing course aimed at beginners and  intermediates who would like to expand their throwing skills.

This is an opportunity to learn new skills and brushup on essential techniques.

The forms that you are going to make are all based on the range of pots that I produce and have long experience in making. 

As the participant number is only 4 I will be able to give each person a good amount of one to one attention.

About Sabine

 

Sabine's pots are mainly thrown on the potters wheel, sometimes altered, cut and put together again.

Using clay bodies mixed by herself, she makes small series of mugs, jugs, lidded jars, bowls and much more. She fires her pots in a kiln for two days and one night entirely with wood to 1300 degree

At a high temperature she sprays bicarbonate of soda in the kiln to give each piece, along with the fly ash in the kiln, a unique character.   

Sabine completed an a three year apprenticeship as a potter in East Germany. She was then for the first time introduced to wood firing.

Since then, the excitement of staying up all night feeding an ever hungry kiln with wood, the direct impact of when and how much wood to put in the firebox, has never left her.

In 2000 she decided to travel to England to gain more experience in ceramics. She has met her partner Nic Collins, who is also a potter, here and in 2001 she moved to Devon permanently.

She likes her pots to be inviting to touch and handle on a daily basis in the kitchen and around the house.

Day 2: Handling mugs and finishing oval bowls
