Throwing On The Wheel – Adults
Adults - Additional classes during September will be available as part of the Wanstead Fringe Festival. Please visit wansteadfringe.org for further information and to book
Cost – £40 per person
Taster sessions are the perfect way to introduce yourself to pottery. In this introductory class you will be guided through the basics of throwing clay on the potter’s wheel
These classes feature a maximum of three students. You will be taught how to prepare your clay, how to centre it on the wheel, how to pull up the walls of your piece to create form and how to use the tools provided
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 thrown pot from the session. After it has become leather hard the piece will be finished, fired and glazed for you. 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 clothing 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!
Taster sessions are a fun way to introduce yourself and others to clay and also make wonderful gift experiences. Gift vouchers are available.
