Spend a creative and relaxing day making pots on the potter’s wheel. Ever yearned to go ‘hands on’ with a potter’s wheel…or maybe you need to fine tune your technique? Whatever your experience, beginner or improver, this is the course for you.
Small friendly groups and eight electric potter’s wheels ensure plenty of individual attention and guidance. Participants are consistently amazed at what they achieve in a day!
The workshop starts at 10am where you’ll be individually assigned a potter’s wheel for the duration of the workshop.
After tea/coffee, introductions and initial demonstration you will be taken as a group, step by step, through the pot throwing process. Once you have got the hang of things, you will be encouraged to develop at your own pace with individual tutoring as and when required.
Around 1pm, a lunch consisting of rolls, cheese, ham, salad and fruit is served. In the afternoon there will be further demonstrations after which you will work larger lumps of clay, make bigger pots and explore different shapes and forms.
At the end of the workshop you will be expected to clean your wheel and select your favourite one or two pieces, depending on size to be fired and glazed. (Extra pots can be fired at cost – approx. £6 per item payable on the day)
The session ends at 4pm.
Cost: £150 Includes refreshments, lunch, firing, glazing (1-3 pots) and the cost of posting your masterpieces.
