What happens in this class?

This is a taster session and shows a snippet of what goes on in our working studio. Here, we teach the beginning stages of throwing on the wheel. Starting by kneading the clay and preparing it into balls, big and small, so you can work your way up in scale.

You will be shown a demonstration and have 1 to 1 support to help you grasp this masterful process. It can be difficult if you are learning it for the first time and by all means we do not expect you to be an expert in less than 2 hours…

Having not done pottery since school, to use a wheel for the first time and produce a piece of pottery that looked good was truly amazing. I really enjoyed the experience. Playing with clay was fantastic and Freya was excellent at guiding and helping you whilst letting you do it yourself. I would definitely recommend doing the class.

I can't recommend this class enough! Fantastic, friendly atmosphere in a lovely studio. The basics were taught reasonably quickly to allow us the majority of the 2 hours to practice throwing - I ended up completing 4 different pieces with plenty of support and guidance from Freya. A++

Loved the class. Freya is accommodating and helpful. Both chris and herself are good fun and experts at pottery making. We had a blast. I thought the extra glazing fee was a bit much but I was happy to pay as I’m pregnant and unfortuantely won’t get back to glaze myself. I really enjoyed every bit of true class. It was good fun and quite therapeutic. Would do it again if it was on discount. But then hospitality was lovely and all the people in the class were lovely too xx

Freya is a great teacher, and we had a lovely time using the wheel to make different cylinders and bowls. Would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to learn some pottery basics in a relaxed and fun environment.

I have wanted to try pottery throwing for a long time! This class seemed perfect as it focused solely on wheel work. It did not disappoint! Freya is a great teacher and explains everything so well! We all managed to make around 6 pots/bowls each in the time we had. The time flew by! I could have spent all day there it was so much fun! I am certainly heading back to do more there and I would highly recommend the class to anyone who wants to try this amazing craft out.

Freya's studio has a great atmosphere and it's evident how talented the potters are. It was clear from the start how knowledgeable Freya is and how experienced she is at teaching. We had plenty of materials, a lot of time on the wheel and Freya was always able to help if things went wrong!

Freya was a brilliant teacher. She provided incredibly clear instruction in a very relaxed setting. And made something potentially incredibly difficult feel really achievable to a complete novice. All the staff were super helpful. Thank you Freya x
