  • Wheelthrowing techniques (to make utilitarian objects including bowls, cups and containers)
  • Handbuilding, including slab, coil and pinch techniques (to make utilitarian objects or sculptural art works)
  • Centering techniques
  • Textures
  • Sculpture (making portrait busts, animals or abstract objects)
