Learning a new skill is always so rewarding with a great sense of achievement. 


For the half day class  you will be able to learn the basics from weighing up your clay, wedging, centering and pulling up the walls of your pots and using tools to create some beautiful bowls or cups.
I will demonstrate the process to you, after a hot drink and explanation of the stages your pot will go through. The rest of the time you will be on the wheel creating your masterpieces with lots of fun, help and guidance along the way. 
If you are an improver and wish to tackle a particular shape then just let me know and I will tailor the teaching to you, to suit your needs. Your pots (up to 3) will then be dried, bisque fired and then glazed with a colour of your choice, which you choose at the end of the session whilst eating some homemade cake and admiring your beautiful pots! 
Collection is normally 4-5 weeks later, an email will be sent to you when they are ready for collection from the box situated by the garage. There will be 4 spaces available per class so you might be sharing with other potters or you can book up all the spaces to share with friends if available.

£90 per person

                                                                 

For the whole day class you will need to purchase the morning and afternoon sessions.  During the day you will be able to learn the basics from weighing up your clay, wedging, centering and pulling up the walls of your pots and using tools to create some beautiful bowls or cups. I will demonstrate the process to you and the rest of the time you will be on the wheel creating your masterpieces with lots of fun, help and guidance along the way. We'll have breaks for tea/coffee and homemade cake and stop for lunch half way through- which is always a good time for a recap to continue creating for the afternoon. Please bring a packed lunch. You will then choose your favourite pots to keep (up to 6) which will then be dried, bisque fired and then glazed with a colour of your choosing and fired again for you. Collection is normally 4-5 weeks later, an email will be sent to you when they are ready.  Please note that classes are for up to 4 people as I have 4 wheels. If you wish to share your experience with friends, you are very welcome just make sure you buy them a session each. £180 per person
