4-Weeks Evening Pottery Throwdown Course in Schull
We are really happy to introduce our 4 weeks pottery wheel course to Schull and hope you will enjoy it in this beautiful village environment which looks down towards the sea.
If you would like an immersive pottery throwdown experience where you learn to make your own pottery during a 4-evening course, then this may be just what you are looking for!
On this 4weeks evening throwdown course, in a small class guided by our expert potter, you will work on your own pottery wheel to shape clay, learning throwing, centring, and pulling techniques and making pottery pieces which you can take home with you to airdry (please note these pieces can be used for display only and are not watertight).
We really hope you enjoy your time on the wheel as much as we enjoy teaching it, and look forward to seeing you in Schull!
