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 8 of your pots.

*Please consider that this is physical activity using your hands, arms and shoulders, this course may not be suitable for you if you have concerns.


A vegetarian lunch is provided by Penny of Travels with Lemons, who has a real passion for cooking. Using home grown vegetables and locally sourced produce.
