£50.00£80.00

Perfect for individuals, couples or family groups.  Date to be arranged on booking.

This private taster 2 hour session and makes a great introduction for those wishing to explore the joys of the pottery wheel as an individual or with a friend or family member.   Children over the age of 8-9 years old are very welcome if accompanied by an adult.

  • Working with clay is messy!  Please wear comfy clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, and bring an apron.

  • A hair bobble to tie up long hair

  • Flat shoes are most comfortable

  • Please arrive 5 minutes before your session time to get your apron on and be ready to start on time.

Tip: Short fingernails are much easier to throw with.

During the session you will use buff stoneware clay to practice throwing your own small bowls or pots on the potter’s wheel.  You will be guided step by step through the following processes:

  •  Prepare the clay by ‘wedging’

  •  Form the clay into balls ready for throwing

  •  Be shown how to centre the clay on the wheel

  •  Open out the pot and pull up the walls

Your pots will be left for several days to thoroughly dry out before being fired twice in the kiln.  Once cooled, the pot will be coated in a glaze and fired a second time.  Your pot will be in the kiln for about 4 days in total and will be ready to collect around 4-6 weeks later.
