Spinning with Your Style – Wheel-throwing Workshop

COURSE FEATURES
Wheel-throwing is a relaxing act bringing you away from the busy city life. It helps slowing down your pace, as the wheel spins,  joy and leisure naturally come through. The hand-making piece also embodies one’s ideas and unique artistic style. This introductory course aims at equipping beginners with basic skills on wheel-throwing, e.g. kneading, throwing, trimming, pulling handles, cutting and joining pieces. To facilitate the creative process, different decorative techniques such as the use of slip, stamping, carving, chattering and glazing will be demonstrated.

The course enables the participants to:

  • have basic knowledge on clay as an art medium,
  • throw simple forms
  • pull & attach handles
  • decorate their works with different techniques
  • have basic knowledge on bisque and high fired pieces
  • glaze their works

*Alumni of Hong Kong Art School (former enrollees or graduates from our award-bearing programmes or returning short course participants who have enrolled into our short courses for 3 times or above) , can enjoy 5% off the course fee for this course.

TUTOR
Renita Cheung
Majoring in Ceramics, Renita received her Bachelor of Art (Fine Art) Degree from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University (co-presented by Hong Kong Art School) in 2016. Learning ceramics is a self-discovery process for her. Working with clay is meditative and naturally put her in trance. Her exploration in human consciousness becomes one of the major themes in her work. She uses translucent porcelain and light to materialize abstract ideas and create atmospheres to embrace the spectators.

She received the ‘Giant Year Gallery Award’ in 2015, the ‘Mr. Jerry Kwan Memorial Scholarship’ and the ‘Fresh Trend Art Award’ in 2016. She exhibited her work at ‘The Gallery of Hong Kong Art School’ , ‘Giant Year Gallery’ , ‘Fresh Trend Art Graduates Joint Exhibition’, ‘Asia Contemporary Art Show –The Fall Edition’ , ‘Fine Art Asia’ , ‘Garden of the Artisans’ and ‘Daily Abstract Joint Exhibition’ after graduation. Her artwork has been collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum.
