Beginners pottery throwing course


About the Course

Beginners pottery wheel experience.

Have you always wanted to try making a pot on a potter's wheel? Maybe you have a friend or family member who has and you’re looking for a special gift experience for them? Here is the perfect experience for you…

You will spend the 3 days learning the basics of throwing on an electric potter’s wheel with the tutor Joy Gibbs Price. With expert tuition you will be introduced to the wheel with demonstrations and careful explanations of the different stages of making: wedging, centering, opening out and pulling up. You will also learn how to refine your pots with trimming, adding handles and decoration. You will then try the wheel at your own pace with as much or as little guidance as you like.

The experience runs for 5 hours every day with a 45min break for lunch. A light lunch will be provided. Tea, coffee and biscuits are included whenever you need a break.

The three days will be split into throwing, refining and decoration and at the end of the 3 days you will select your favourite pieces (maximum of 10) which I will then glaze fire for you in an earthenware glaze. Please allow up to three weeks after your experience for the collection of your finished pieces.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
