If you would like to be alerted for any new dates for these classes, please email us by clicking here, and we'll send you an email to let you know when the next term of classes are scheduled again. 

If you wish to develop your wheel throwing skills, Rowley holds a six week block of wheel throwing classes. These classes offer customised tuition for your individual skill level. Whether you are new to ceramics, or want to develop existing skills and style, these sessions will be tailored to your needs. Rowley will provide personal tuition in small groups of up to six students each term, focusing on throwing and assembling techniques with additional information shared about firing and glazing, as required by each student. This is a great opportunity to learn from one of Australia’s most experienced ceramic artists and educators, so be quick to book your spot.

You should bring your own white stoneware clay for these classes. Please also bring your own ceramic hand tools if you have them, or you can make use of those at Quixotica. Tea and coffee will be provided. 

Cost - $375 (6 classes) per person for six weeks of classes, one day per week.

TESTIMONIALS -

Feedback from Rowley's recent wheel throwing classes at Quixotica - 

I want to thank you both for a great 6 weeks of throwing.  To say I am inspired is not the full story.  I think I went into the course wanting to refine my techniques to achieve success but with only a vague idea of what I wanted to make.  That was questioned straight away and I now have a good idea of what I want to concentrate on - urns and jugs predominantly.  In addition, I was truly inspired by the fine underglaze work that Sarah does, in particular.  I think the fine work and fine detail suits my temperament (and likes) to a T.  I am now more confident that I can work towards producing the thrown work to complement it, or vice versa, can complement my thrown work.  As you say, Rowley, what I need now is practice.  Many happy days ahead in my little garden shed.

Anita, Sunshine Coast, Qld - Wheel Throwing Classes - July/ Aug 2021

There were many things I enjoyed about the classes:

  •   the friendly welcome from both Sarah and Rowley

  •   the planning, forethought and focus that was evident throughout

  •   the clear, easy to follow demonstrations

  •   the high level of attentiveness to each participant in terms of their specific and individual needs

  •   Rowley’s positive nature and input to ensure a great outcome for each student

  •   an informative, stimulating and fun class

  •   the generosity of spirit including sharing decades of experience

  •   it was great to meet others with a similar interest

  •   being present in and being able to observe a working studio

  •   lovely surroundings

  • the Raku lesson at the end was the absolute icing on the cake. Had been looking forward to it from the very beginning and loved what I took home.

Thank you!

I enjoyed your teaching approach of allowing each person to explore what they wanted to. It's a lot like riding a bike and with a little correction the motor skills kick in. You most certainly have an eye for correction and a major skill set to inform your teaching! Thanks for your wisdom sharing and love the space at Quixotica!

Robyn, Sunshine Coast, Qld - Wheel Throwing Classes - September 2019

The course was just sheer joy for me. Seeing everyone's different ways of doing things and just generally being in the studio bring me so much happiness. Thank you again for all of your generous advice and help throughout the course.

Kate, Sunshine Coast, Qld - Wheel Throwing Classes - September 2019

The classes were thoroughly enjoyable, not to mention constructive (thanks for being so patient with the rookie!) and I'll definitely recommend your workshops and Quixotica to who ever I can.
