Learn to throw pots on a potters wheel! This is a two-hour taster session, £90 is for one person. If you wish to book a session for two people together please put 2 in the box. Sessions are normally on Weekdays and Saturday from 10:00 - 12:00 Sundays are a later start from 11:00 - 13:00 A friend is welcome to sit and watch and take pics if wished. This introductory workshop makes a lovely Birthday/Anniversary/treat present, perfect for the complete beginner, or the more experienced student. I have over 24 years experience as a qualified ceramics teacher and professional ceramicist/potter. I have taught all levels from degree to adult ed. My Post Grad. training was in Mashiko, Japan. You will receive as much or as little direct assistance as you need in order to help you to succeed. I have a maximum of two students at each session to enable me to give you my full attention Your session includes choosing your 2 best pots if on a one person session or 2 pots each, if on a two person session. These will be glazed and fired with the glazes of your choice, they will be ready for collection within 3-4 weeks. *Please note this is for adults only and the Health & Safety maximum weight limit to use a seated potters wheel as advised by the manufacturers is 20 stone. *You will need to able to sit at the wheel (see photo's) for most of the 2hr session and be at a normal level of strength and stamina. *Max 2 people. *Sessions can be arranged for week days or at weekends, just let me know. * VERY IMPORTANT- PLEASE NOTE It takes a certain amount of strength and stamina to throw, so it is perhaps not suited to those who might find it difficult to sit for 2 hours or who have a very limited upper body strength.

What's included in the price?

Tuition and clay. Choose your two favourite pots and have them glazed ready to be collected later. Firing & glazing of 2 pots per session per person included. Extras can be purchased at a small cost. Please note, Cosseys Yard is a rural studio pottery that functions on very traditional lines and is without most mod cons. Join me in some time spent in the countryside. N.B.
