Introduction to ceramics- 6 week course.
This course is perfect for beginners of all ages, but also caters for more experienced potters who just want to come and use our facilities. Depending on your skill level, we can give you as much or as little help as you need.

We have 2 groups, one on Monday nights and one on Thursday nights. When you visit our ticket page you will be able to choose which night you wish to sign up for. They’re both the same class. We will meet on your chosen evening from 7pm-9pm for 6 weeks. During this time we’ll teach you how to throw pots, make slab/coil pots, decoration techniques and glazing. At the end of the course you will have your own finished pieces to take home. The price includes materials and firing. We aim to complete 3 pieces during this time, but if you make extra pieces and want to keep them then we will calculate a price based on the weight of the additional pots to cover our material and firing costs.

We believe pottery is a very relaxing and therapeutic activity and a great way to meet new people.
Come and get creative!
