Weekend Pottery Courses

Saturday morning begins at 9.30 with demonstrations of clay preparation and throwing on the wheel. Each person will have their own wheel and can spend the day potting. There are breaks for coffee, tea and biscuits, a homemade lunch is provided and at the end of the afternoon, tea and cake! In the afternoon as an alternative to throwing, a chance to learn various hand building techniques. Sunday morning we will show you how to turn and trim your pots which will have dried enough to handle overnight. In the afternoon there is just time to decorate all the pots you have made. We will fire 4kg of your pots.

One day courses

Our one day courses offer the beginner and more experienced potter the opportunity to learn new skills in throwing and handbuilding and to practice in a relaxed and friendly environment. The day will include demonstrations, 1:1 teaching and lots of ideas. One day courses can be tailored to the needs of individuals and will also include decorating techniques for those who come regularly.

We will let you know when your pots have been fired. Price includes 4kg of fired pots. Minimum number of students per class 4. Maximum number 6.
