One day pottery throwing course



This one-day pottery throwing course is suitable for either a complete beginner, or for those that have some experience working with clay and would like to develop their skills. It is suitable for those who would like a more in depth experience of learning throwing techniques. You will have access to an electric potter’s wheel and all tools and materials that you will need for the duration of the course. Places are limited to a maximum of two people, and you will have lots of one to one tuition from a fully qualified potter.

During the course you will learn how to prepare the clay, wedging techniques, centering clay on the wheel, throwing basic cylinders then moving on to different forms – vases, bowls etc. If time allows and towards the end of the day if the pots are dry enough, we can show you how to turn and finish them.

If you would like to learn more about turning, finishing, pulling and adding handles and more you could attend our two day course where we cover more of these techniques on the second day.

We are located in a rural, peaceful setting on a small farm on the outskirts of Holbeach, near Spalding in Lincolnshire, where we also keep our pedigree sheep! There is also plenty of off road parking.

Please be aware that working with clay can be a physical activity and also require you to sit for long periods of time on the wheel. If you have any special requirements, please contact us prior to booking your place to ensure that we can accommodate your needs.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
