Have a go on our potter’s wheel and learn to handle clay. In this extended throwing weekend course, you will explore the processes of manipulating clay, trimming and adding handles, etc.

In this two-day weekend session, you will be guided through the processes of throwing, including Prepping and centering your clay, coning, lifting a wall, and the introduction of tools into the making process.

Your second session will focus on trimming and tidying your pieces from the previous day. You will also explore decoration and surface patterns.

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

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.
