‘Pottery Throw Down’!



Do you watch the Pottery Throw Down or the film Ghost and think, I want to try that! Well, you can with these taster throwing sessions in which you will explore the techniques of throwing on a wheel.
During the workshop you will learn how to wedge and prepare balls of clay and then have
lots of time to practice the basics of throwing, centring your clay, pulling and then shaping clay to make cylinders and bowls
At the end of the workshop you will be able to choose two of your favourite pots (or 4 if you have booked a full day) which will be bisque fired.  You then have the choice of coming to glaze them yourself on one of the glazing sessions(included in the cost), or I can glazed in a colour of your choice before being fired again. Your finished artwork with be ready for pickup from Felix and Tabitha usually within 6-8 weeks, depending on drying conditions.
£45 per person for half day or £85 per person for full day, which includes all materials, two firing, glaze plus refreshments. . (Aprons are provided but please wear appropriate clothing and take off any jewellery as clay can be very messy.)
There will be a maximum of 9 people attending this workshop, each with their own dedicated potter’s wheel.  Suitable for Adults and older Children.
