Throwing Pottery Taster
A 2-hour session that guides you through the fundamental steps of throwing a pot on the wheel. In the first part, we will cover some essential theory and you will learn to prepare your clay. Following a detailed demonstration, you will then have the chance to create your own pieces.
Throwing is a messy business, remember to bring an apron and trim long nails as they can get in the way of your creative expression. There are more subsequent stages before a pot is fully finished. At the end of the session you will be asked to pick your favourite piece to be glazed/fired for you – which is included in the price and normally takes around 8 weeks. The firing of additional pots is charged at £10 per piece.
