What you will do
Two session class
This weekend course is perfect for beginners who want to learn how to throw and trim a pot on the pottery wheel. The course is run by Suzan, a professional pottery artist.
On the first day of the course, Suzan will give you an introduction to the materials and the processes of wheel throwing. This will be followed by a quick demonstration so you can see exactly how the craft is preformed.
On the second day she will show you how to trip/turn the pot. As the class is a maximum of two people Suzan can then assist you one-to-one on the wheel making sure you are using the correct technique
By the end of the class you will have created a number of pots. You will be able to choose up to 3 a pieces that you have thrown during the class and choose one of the glazes available. You will finish the pot on the second day of the class and Suzan will add the glaze after the workshop is finished, ready for you to come and collect it at a later date.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
