Course description

Saturday Pottery Throwing Taster:

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. 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.

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!

Two- part Pottery Taster- Throwing and Glazing (Booked online with Hotcourses)
by Paul - April 2016

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.
