1 DAY BEGINNERS FOUNDATION INTRO TO POTTERY COURSE

This brilliant new beginners foundation one day course is to help get you started on your pottery journey. During the course of the day you will be given an introduction to various pottery techniques including throwing on the wheel and hand building. Adults 18+ only.

• You will learn the basics of throwing & also looking at hand building techniques such as coiling, pinching or slab work.

• This is designed for those who are not sure what course they want to do and are keen to get an insight as to what it’s like to throw on the wheel and hand build before committing to a longer course.

Also great as a one-off experience.

• After this short course you can specialise and book onto our 8 week beginners throwing course (please note that you will not be able to go straight onto the intermediate course).

• Alternatively, if you want to learn more about both the wheel and hand building working with specific projects and additional techniques, you can book onto our 9 week combined course to become a better all rounder.

• Split in two over the course of the day, you will start with the wheel at 10.30am-1pm, have a break for lunch and from 2-4.30pm do some hand building.

Saturdays 10.30am-4.30pm.

£120 inclusive all materials & firings. There are no hidden costs. You will be able to get all the work you make fired.

This class is not suitable for pregnant women unless you are only going to do hand building. You will need to contact us in advance to let us know.
