POTTERY WHEEL EXPERIENCE MAKING YOUR OWN POT
This is a 6 and a half hour introductory class for those who are absolute beginners - you will learn the very basics of throwing on the potters wheel.
Centering your clay, coning the clay, shaping and working with your tools and turning it at the end to perfect the shape.
This is a fantastic way to enjoy and learn the age old art of the potters wheel which due to the Pottery throw down has become very much in trend. It has to be on everyone bucket list.
After we have dried your pots normally around 4 to 5 each depending on your speed and what you want to make. You can learn how to turn them or perhaps put a handle on if you have made a mug.
You will then paint it them on the wheel wheel spinning or with many other techniques with our Colour 2 clay colours that go onto unfired clay. Alternatively you can choice for us to dip your pot into anyone of 10 lovely stoneware glazes.
The classes are kept small so you get lots of help to make a lovely pots.
