Four Hour Workshop

Adults & family groups

Cost – £70 per person

In this 4 hour workshop you will have the opportunity to learn a very accessible hand-building technique and be taught how to throw on the potter’s wheel

The workshop can accommodate a maximum of 4 students and is ideal for family groups with children over the age of 11

Once everyone has begun working on their hand-building projects, the group will be split into two. One group will continue hand-building while the other will move onto the potter’s wheels. The two groups will then swap, with the aim for everyone to end the class with a hand-built piece and a wheel thrown pot

Please be prepared for a few disasters before you get to grips fully with the potter’s wheel. It’s perfectly normal for beginners and all part of the learning process

You will keep your best hand-built piece and thrown pot from the session. After they have dried sufficiently the bases will be finished for you and the pieces fired and glazed. There will be the opportunity to choose a glaze from the select range of studio dipping glazes. Once your piece has completed its second firing and is ready for collection you will be notified by email, approximately 6 to 8 weeks later

The price includes all materials used during the session. Please feel free to bring your own apron, although they can be provided. Please wear old clothes and shoes!

A welcome email will be sent with further information ahead of your class

For a more comprehensive insight into the various making and decorative techniques, please consider the six week course

I look forward to welcoming you to the studio!
