7 Week Throwing Course
A 7-evenings introduction to the craft of throwing on the potters’ wheel. Learn about this meditative process used for millennia to create everyday objects as well as once-off pieces of art. Discover the steps behind making beautiful pottery and follow the lifecycle of a humble lump of clay from design to a finished piece.
In a small class you will learn how to work with clay and realise your designs from 2D to 3D. We will cover the whole process from a single lump of clay through throwing, to drying and firing and glazing your own work. You will gain a basic understanding of the process behind throwing on the potters’ wheel.

This pottery class will suit beginners looking for an introduction to working with clay, or those who have worked with clay before and would like a simple refresher. Participants will learn the basics required to make a simple object.
What should I wear/bring?
Wear comfortable clothes that you do not mind getting messy. Please bring your own apron.
Should I wear a mask?
If you can we ask that you do wear a mask for the duration of the workshop.
What's the day like?
You will be welcomed by your teacher and brought to our top floor classroom (no lifts available). Each participant will have access to their own potters' wheel for the duration of the workshop. You will have one hour lunch break at 12noon. Lunch is not provided. Workshop ends with class and equipment clean up - another important part of potter's training!
When will my pots be available for collection?
You will have 1 pot of your own at the end of the day that we will fire and glaze for you. The pot will be ready for collection from our studio within 2 months after the class. We will email you when the pots are ready for collection.
You can also pick a second pot that can be glazed by you at one of our Glazing Workshops.
