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 40 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:
£60 (for 1 person)
£50 (per person for 2 people)
£40 (per person for 3 people)

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

Pottery Throwing Experience

Do you fancy a more 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 more 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 price of these sessions are dependant on the group size, so please get in touch and we’ll get a session costed and booked in.

NOTE: 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 4 weeks from attending the session to receiving your beautiful pottery pieces, but worth the wait!
