NEW Teaser Throwing Class
About the class
Welcome to our new ELEMENTARY Throwing Teaser Class!
On this half-day workshop, in a small class, you will work on your own pottery wheel to shape clay, guided by one of our expert potters and learning about throwing techniques.
This class is an introduction to throwing on a pottery wheel, giving you a glimpse into working with clay, centering, and pulling.
During this teaser class you will learn about basic throwing techniques and tools used to shape clay.
Please note - the clay you use during the class will be recycled and reused. The piece you'll make will not be fired. You're welcome to take it home with you to air-dry, but please note it won't be suitable to be used with food or liquid.
We really hope you will enjoy your time on the wheel as much as we enjoy teaching it, and hope to see you soon in our School of Pottery!
If you would like to give this Workshop as a gift please look at our Gift Cards options here.
This workshop runs for a half day in our light-filled Arran Street East studio in the heart of the Dublin Fruit and Vegetable Markets area. Eircode: D07 K744 google map.
What should I wear/bring?
Your clothes and shoes will get wet and dirty from clay splashes so please wear comfortable clothes that you do not mind getting messy. Please bring your own apron and a hand towel.
Please keep your hair tidy and have your nails short.
You may take the piece of your choice home with you (please note it won't be suitable to be used with food or liquid) so please bring a small box (like Tupperware or cardboard) to bring your creation home with you.
Will my pot be fired?
Who is this course for? This teaser workshop will suit beginners looking for an introduction to working with clay.
Is there an age limit for the Workshop? This course is generally for people aged 18 and above. A younger teenager may attend if they are accompanied by an adult. Please let us know in advance.
What's the day like? You will be welcomed by your teacher and brought to an upstairs light-filled classroom (no lifts available).

What are my transport/parking options getting to the workshop? The nearest Luas Red Line stop is 'Four Courts', (a five minute walk away) and many bus routes service Stop 1479 on Ormond Quay, at the junction with Capel Street. You'll also find a Dublin Bikes stand at each of these locations.

Are there any Health and Safety issues? Please note you will be working on a pottery wheel in a bent position which might put some strain on your neck or back or wrists. Please first consult your doctor if you have had back, neck, wrist or any other injuries.
To reach the classroom you will have to use stairs and there is no lift in the building.
Please keep your hair tied up and your nails short.
