Enjoyed pottery painting? Why not challenge yourself further? Join us for an immersive pottery workshop that will guide you through the steps of throwing a piece on the potter’s wheel. In the first part, we will delve into some essential theory while learning to prepare our clay. After a detailed demonstration, you will then have the opportunity to craft your own unique pots. This session is tailored for beginners – whether you are looking for a date night idea, gifting an experience, planning a special occasion, or organizing a team event!
Pottery making can get messy, so we recommend trimming long nails and tying long hair back to ensure nothing gets in the way of your creative expression. Towards the end of the session, you’ll have the chance to select your favourite piece for glazing and firing, a process that typically takes around 8 weeks. Additional pots can be fired at a charge of £10 each.
Refunds & Cancellations:
Please appreciate that we are a small independent pottery studio, and any timetable changes directly affect our ability to keep it running. Refunds and rescheduling can only be offered up to 14 days before the date of a taster.
We are experiencing a very high demand on weekends at the moment. If a date is unavailable we might be able to offer a private session outside of our regular slots – please get in touch below.
