For this week you do need experience if you want to throw...

You need to have the basic skills of throwing for the Neriage & Agate technic.

This do not means that you must be a very advanced potter, just knowing how to wedge the clay, centre and pull up the clay in a confident way are important and then we can get playing with the different colors of clay and get that marble going on the wheel created ceramics. We will try different stoneware clay bodies and play with different marble technics on the wheel and discover these lovely technics.

For handbuilding you don't need experience with clay, but be a bit handy :)

You need to like clay and patterns with this intriging and beautiful technic called "Nerikomi".

Nerikomi is a contemporary Japanese term. Marbling ceramic techniques were used in Egypt and China and through the Romans to the West. Early ceramics in Stoke-on-Trent use more than one colour of clay for decorative effect. In England this was referred to as agateware. {source:wikipedia}
