Introduction to Wheel Thrown Pottery


Learn to throw a pot on the potter’s wheel in a small group workshop. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners, as well as the more experienced.

We start the lesson with a quick demonstration, then it’s straight down to business – getting mucky and making a pot.

Aprons are provided, however please wear suitable clothes and shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty.

At the end of the experience you get to choose your two best pots for firing, ready for collection after approximately 3 – 6 weeks.
