Throwing on the potter's wheel

 

 

Ever fancied a go on the potter's wheel? Why not book a two hour pottery taster session? It's a great way to relax with friends and family while trying your hand at something different. Family groups with children and community groups are always welcome. A taster session can be a great treat to celebrate someone's birthday or even an upcoming wedding.

And of course, if it's just something you would like to try as a treat for yourself, one to one taster sessions are also available. 

 

The price of each session includes all materials, glazes and firings and all tools and equipment are provided. You can make as much work as you like during the workshop, and after glazing and firing it will be yours to take home with you. The glazes used are food safe.  Your finished work will be ready to collect three to four weeks after your taster session, or it can be posted to you.
