SCHULL SATURDAY (OR) SUNDAY POTTERY THROWDOWN WORKSHOP

We are really happy to introduce our day-long pottery wheel class to Schull and hope you will enjoy it in this beautiful village environment which looks down towards the sea.

On this one-day workshop, in a small class, you will work on your own pottery wheel to shape clay, guided by an expert potter, learning pottery throwing techniques and making some small pots of your own to take home with you.  

You are welcome to bring all the pots you make home with you to airdry (please note these pieces can be used for display only but won’t be able to hold liquid). 

We really hope you will enjoy your time on the wheel as much as we enjoy teaching it, and look forward to seeing you in Schull!
