An ideal introduction to pottery, this fun, one day course will take you through three popular pottery techniques; coiling, slab building and pot throwing.
During the day you will make a coiled pot, eg; fairy house, bowl or planter, then you will make a slabbed vase or tealight holder. To finish the day off, you will then throw a pot on one of our potter’s wheels. If time permits you could also have a go at pinching a set of dishes or making a delightful robin, penguin or similar. 
There will be a short break for lunch so you will need to bring a packed lunch. You will need to wear comfortable shoes and warm, old clothes suitable for working in a pottery studio. Please bring:
  • an apron,
  • old towl (plus plastic bag to take home in!)
  • any refreshments you may need (there is a cafe on site but please check your workshop times against opening hours).
  • face covering / mask
  • if you have your own tools you may like to bring these too (you can also purchase a set via our website)
All pieces made during the day will be dried, fired then available for collection approx. two weeks later. Anyone wishing to glaze their work may book to join any general session at the studio (charged per session).
