About the Course

These classes are for all abilities. During the sessions I will take you through basic techniques in hand-building, decoration and wheel work. There will be a maximum of 4 students per class.

What will I learn?
- Hand-building techniques including pinch pots, slab building and coiling
- How to make pots on a wheel (throwing)

- An old towel
- Any tools you may want to use

Refunds and cancellations:
Please choose carefully. Due to a limited class size I can only issue a refund if the place is reassigned. In the unlikely event that I have to cancel a class, I will arrange another date for students to attend. Your purchase is in acceptance of these terms.
