Pottery throwing sessions on the potter's wheel in Norfolk



Learn to throw pots on a potters wheel! This is a two-hour taster session, for one person. If you wish to book a session for two people 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 present, perfect for the complete beginner, or the more experienced student. I have over 23 years experience as a ceramics teacher and professional ceramicist/potter. I have taught all levels from degree to adult ed. My Post Grad. training was in Mashiko, Japan. 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. **Due to C19 restrictions masks must be worn at all times. *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.
