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!

The session takes you through the basics in throwing, paying close detail to technique. It is short and intense, you learn a lot quickly and is only a snippet of what throwing involves in our workshop. If you want to keep any of your pots the best three are turned and bisque fired for you, glazing sessions are arranged at the end of the session for a week or 2 later at £15 so feel free to decide whether you want to keep your pots or not.

For continuation there is the 4 week course.

4 sessions go as follows:

Wk1/ throw cylinders/ bowls
Wk2/ throw more complex forms i.e bottle, vase..or larger scale depending on individuals progress
W3/ turn footrings into all pots at leatherhard stage, decorate, add handles etc.
W4/ glaze all pots with selection of 30 stoneware glazes.

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. After a bit of practise 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!

by Lucy - May 2017

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.

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.
