About the Course

This course is aimed at enthusiastic Beginners and those with limited experience.

It covers the basics of slab building, coiling and throwing.

Get in touch to discuss if you have already done a bit of Pottery but would like to build on what you have already learnt.

Small class sizes enable us to adapt to the needs of the students. We have a maximum of 6 students with 2 tutors, so plenty of attention for everybody.

You will be guided through the processes by Emily Myers & Jennie Gilbert both experienced potters and teachers.

The Course will take place in Jennie’s workshop in the Chalke Valley, west of Salisbury in Wiltshire.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Tools, clay, firing of your best pieces are all included. That combined with delicious homemade refreshments and lunch make for a great 2 days!.

Want to review this course?

I signed up to the course as a complete beginner, with all the apprehensions that often accompany new (ad)ventures, and came away at the end of the two days having gained the beginnings of skills and a lot of enthusiasm. Both Jenny and Emily are gifted teachers from whom I learnt so much......and it was such fun!
