Have a go on our potter’s wheel and learn to handle clay.

These intimate 5-hour sessions will explore the processes of manipulating clay on the wheel. In this one-day session, you will be guided through the processes of throwing, including Prepping and centring your clay, coning, lifting a wall, and the introduction of tools into the making process.

At the end of the course, you will be able to pick your favourite pieces which will be fired and glazed in one of our standard house glazes. You’ll be able to collect your finished work 3 weeks from the end of the course.

This session will be a small group, which will mean direct one-on-one contact to develop your skills and improve your throwing.

  • Who is the Workshop for?

    This course is suitable for adults who are complete beginners or for those who wish to refresh their previous knowledge. You don’t need to feel confident in clay to start this course as all aspects of the medium are covered.

  • Do I Need to Bring Anything?

    All equipment and tools will be provided for you as well materials to explore all processes. We recommend wearing old clothes or bringing an apron in case you get a bit messy! If you have long hair we recommend tying it back.
