Pottery throwing sessions for up to 4 people (each with a potter's wheel - can sometimes cater for more - please enquire) run throughout the year with Chris Greening in North Worcester.
A great benefit of this course is that you get to both make AND decorate your pots in the same session - there isn't a need to come back to the pottery to do a further decorating stage (unless of course you want to!).
You can choose to book either a one-off lesson that is suitable for absolute beginners as well as those revisiting skills that may have got rusty or, sign up for multiple sessions to complete a pottery project. Please note that the price is per person.
We will use earthenware (the clay used in garden pots) clay with coloured slips (liquid clay coloured with oxides) which gives a wide range of decorative options.
The workshop is equipped with 4 potter’s wheels and a range of tools which will be available for you to try out.
Pottery is a very broad subject and it can sometimes be difficult to know where to start, but if you just want to “have a go at pottery” then we aim to throw and decorate at least four pots you can either take home (in raw clay state) at the end of the lesson or wait for it to be fired (available approximately 3 weeks later).
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 8 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
One off “taster” lessons, or you can book multiple sessions and work on a range of projects.
A lesson includes approximately 3lb of clay and the firing of four of your pieces, which will be ready to collect approximately 3 weeks after the class. Alternatively, a cost for postage can be arranged if preferred.
- Collection of Pots: Due to lack of storage space I'm afraid I can only hold on to your beautiful pots for a month after they come out of the kiln. After that point they will be disposed of. If you would like your pots but unable to collect them please contact me to discuss postage of your pots and a cost for that.
