(Restrictions apply due to Covid regulations. At present I’m not running throwing sessions because of social distancing restrictions. I’m intending to resume sessions on the potters wheel in September. Contact me for up to date information.)

Pottery Throwing Experience

Do you fancy having a go at ‘throwing’ on the potters wheel? Or maybe someone you know does and you’d like to buy a voucher for them.

Since ‘The Great Pottery Throw Down’ was recently broadcast on More4, pottery has become the new baking! It seems that everyone would like to have a go at wrestling with a slippery lump of clay that’s spinning round faster than your undies in a washing machine!

The ‘Pottery Throwing Experience’ is perfect for those of you who’d like to have a go at making something on the potters wheel. You’ll be using an electric ‘Shimpo’ wheel (which are among the best wheels on the market), beautifully silky white stoneware clay and more than 60 glaze colours to choose from.

The session on the wheel lasts for 2 hours… precisely enough time to learn the basics of throwing and to produce something wonderful!

The total cost is:
£65 (per person for 2 people)
£60 (per person for 3 people+)

The price of these sessions can be dependent on the group size. If there are 8 or more in your group get in touch and we’ll get a session costed and booked in.

These prices are inclusive of clay, glaze and 2 firings
(and of course tea or coffee!).

Hand Building Experience

Do you fancy a relaxed pottery hand building session with friends or family… getting creative using textures, stamps, cutters and enough time to make something wonderful for your home, office or garden?

If hand building is your thing, then have a go at coiling, slab building, pinch pots or sculpting in a fun 2 hour session. I have a folder full of project ideas to inspire you or maybe you already have an idea of what to make.

The total cost is:
£65 (per person for 2 people)
£60 (per person for 3 people +)
£Get in touch (8 people+)

The price of these sessions can be dependent on the group size. If there are 8 or more in your group get in touch and we’ll get a session costed and booked in.

(and of course tea or coffee!).

Glazing and Collecting Pottery

 If you’re unable to return to glaze your pottery, you can choose glaze colours from the test tiles and I’ll paint them on for you. It can then go in for the final firing where the magic really happens! If you’re unable to collect your finished masterpieces, I can pop them in the post for you recorded delivery at a cost of £10. It can take up to 4 weeks from attending the session to receiving your beautiful pottery pieces, but worth the wait!
