This is a two hour Pottery Taster. We welcome beginners to learn how to throw on the wheel. Have fun with us and learn our ways! There is a lot to learn in a short amount of time and you can be surprised at how quickly you pick it up! This taster class includes costs for all your clay. Glazing must be completed by you once pots have been bisque fired.
First, we start the process off by preparing and centring the clay. Then, you are shown how to open the pot up, pulling the walls into a simple cylinder to start off with, soon encouraging you to develop your artistic flair with more elaborate designs. As skill and confidence grow, you will stretch your throwing vocabulary with other techniques and exciting new things to make on the wheel. At the end of the throwing session pick your favourite pots and you can come back to glaze them a week later.
Working with clay is not a quick process, and the idea is to learn the stages one must take the clay through to turn it into a useable condition and to grasp the skills that involve the beauty of this versatile material. It won't be long before you can take something home to drink and eat out of.
Welcoming beginners to all the fun.

I had a great time at freya's taster throwing session and she was always on hand to help out and mak sure you leave having had fun. I enjoyed it so much I'd like to head back again for more time on the wheel & to finish off the pots I made.
I'd been wanting to try pottery for ages and I thoroughly enjoyed Freya's course. Super nice, super fun.

We had a great time on this course. Freya was a very good teacher, who explained the basics of throwing before giving us all a chance to throw several pots in her lovely studio. Highly recommended for pottery beginners!
I would highly recommend this course. Chris and Freya are excellent supportive and patient teachers. I had no prior experience of working with clay so it was thrilling to be able to come away from the taster session with my three handmade pots. A lovely relaxed and fun session.
