Pottery Throwing Experiences

Perfect for beginners to pottery and wheel throwing.

Our pottery throwing experiences are a perfect 2 hours for those who are completely new to pottery and wheel throwing.

We run these sessions on Friday afternoons and Saturdays with a maximum of 6 places available on each session – so you won’t be on your own.

Our session leaders will guide you throughout and you will have the opportunity to try to make a small pot on the pottery wheels. Firing and decoration of your completed piece is included in the price.

Once the firing and glazing is complete (about 4-6 weeks) we’ll contact you to come and pick it up.

Our throwing experiences are proving *very* popular, so we’d recommend that you plan ahead when booking!

The price includes 2  kiln firings and decoration of one pot. If participants wish to decorate and have other creations fired there will be a £20 charge per pot.

£85.00 per person

Enjoyed a clay throwing experience today. Got struck straight in and had a great time with a ball of clay and loads of water! Plenty of guidance and encouragement from Sophie who made sure we all managed to produce our own ‘unique’ pots. No experience necessary just a willingness to get stuck in and give it a go. Great fun!

Just a brief note to say how much I enjoyed my introductory pottery lesson. The session was nicely paced & easy going. We each produced a superb piece of pottery, so all in all, a great success. really worth giving a go & good fun.

It’s only week 2 of my 6 week clay course, but I’ve already learnt so much! and I am loving using this knowledge to create freely in a lovely workspace with wonderful people and expert tuition. I am excited to glaze, coil and throw in the upcoming weeks and I would highly recommend the course to anyone wanting to learn. Roll on Wednesday for week 3 !!

Excellent 2 hours enjoyed in different sessions with different tutors by both myself and my niece. We both had fun, learnt something and had a couple of creative pieces to keep. Both tutors were friendly, helpful and efficient. Would highly recommend.

Who knew you could have so much fun with clay!! Started a 6 week workshop in this magical clay filled wonderland with Lise Moorcroft, she has the patience of a saint and the enthusiasm of a kid in a candy store!...and with her help I turned a blob of clay into a masterpiece! So, if your looking for a delightful, messy, and utterly entertaining way to spend your evening, then sign up for a pottery workshop!
