We’ve had a busy start to 2019 at our lovely pottery studio. Last week we had two new 8 week throwing on the potter’s wheel courses starting and one 9 week intro to pottery course as well as the one-off classes on a Saturday! Busy, busy busy!

Thought we’d share some photos from our 9 week intro to pottery course. This is the first time we’ve done this combined course. 4 weeks of the potter’s wheel and 4 weeks of handbuilding followed by a mega glazing session! It was a lovely class and we’re looking forward to getting to know the students and seeing all the wonderful work they produce.

They did so well! It got very messy! Amazing work everyone!

New dates for the next course go up shortly. Look out for them!

 

Beginners 6 week throwing on the Potter’s wheel course: January 16th 2018

Hello 2018.

Three weeks of deep cleaning and the main studio is looking great! While the open sessions are taking a couple of weeks to get going, there’s no rest for the wicked on the 6 week beginners throwing on the potter’s wheel course which started last week on the 9th!

This is week two and Tom, Nicola, Thomas and Jo are beginning to get to grips with the technique of throwing and doing really well. By the end of the class I was beginning to feel a bit redundant!

It’s always a thrilling moment, no matter how long I’ve been teaching, to see the moment when it all just clicks for the student and they can just do it from start to finish without my help. You can see the results for yourself! Can’t wait for next week when they start to learn to turn bases and pull handles.
