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 Channel 4, 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 make a cylinder which might become a cup or jug and/or a bowl. Whatever you end up with you’ll love the experience!

The total cost is:
£65 (per person) 
Minimum of 2 people & maximum 4 people.

These prices are inclusive of clay, glaze and 2 firings.

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 £20. It can take up to 4 weeks from attending the session to receiving your beautiful pottery pieces, but worth the wait!
