Taster Sessions

Our Taster Sessions offer a great introductory experience to working with clay, whether on the potter’s wheel or using handbuilding techniques such as slab building or coiling. Join up with your partner, friends or family and have a great experience doing something different! Our Taster Sessions also make great gifts.

The recommended minimum duration for these sessions is two hours, which gives you ample time to view a demonstration and try your hand at making a number of pieces. The cost for two hours for one person is £95.00 and for each additional person there is a fee of £25.00. This includes all materials, glazes and firings.

We can accommodate up to nine people at a time on the wheel, and 10 people at a time handbuilding. There is the option of booking two workshops to run concurrently, where the groups can swap over after an hour to experience both disciplines.
