About the Class

This intensive four-day course is a great way to focus on learning how to throw on the potter's wheel. On Monday you work on the basics, practising technique with cylinders. Tuesday is spent mastering the bowl and working on scaling up your work, during the course, there is plenty of time to cover lips, handles and much more. Wednesday is a chance to try different clays and work on your own projects. Thursday is spent trimming down pots and making them your own. You will have a chance to explore decorating slips before leaving your pots to dry ready for the kiln. The glazing class is the following week on Thursday 18th July from 6-9pm. 

The cost of the class includes all materials and you will be able to choose your best 20 pots included in the cost of the course with the option to purchase more during the course. We offer each student a potter’s wheel, potters apron, the studio stoneware clay, a chance to try some other clays, decorating slips and glazes.

All classes are for adults only and a maximum of 10 people.


Monday - Thursday from 10 am 4 pm each day plus a follow-up glazing class on Thursday 18th July, 6-9pm.
