One to one throwing sessions

Throwing a bowl


Karen Dawn Curtis runs each 1 to 1 throwing session with the knowledge that throwing is a motor skill that anyone can learn. The teaching will be tailored to the individual learner’s needs. Karen will create a fun and relaxing lesson while you develop the skills you want. You can choose to have your work fired for an additional fee.

Beginners - These sessions can be for, those who have used clay before and for novices to both clay and throwing. Karen will work with you to develop the basic motor skills needed to throw simple forms on the potter’s wheel.

Improvers- These sessions are for those who want to learn to improve their skills and those who want a refresher. Karen will assess your ability and support you to throw the forms that you want to make from bowls to enclosed objects.

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

My daughter and I attended Karen's pottery class and had a great morning. The class was relaxed and informal, Karen talked us through the process of throwing the clay and demonstrated the process before letting us loose on the potters wheels. Throwing the clay is a lot harder than I thought it would be physically but would definitely have another go. Certainly would recommend a class with Karen.

Was very impressed with the Covid procedures Karen has in place, felt a very safe environment, strict cleaning of utensils, no sharing of equipment, open window, hand sanitizer etc.

Absolutely loved the 6-week pottery course with Karen. Each week a new task to learn in pottery-making.

Very much enjoyed it and would thoroughly recommend to anyone!

Thanks Karen!

The lady who took the class was very welcoming, and was interested in what we needed from the course. I enjoyed the throwing session very much, and was also shown other techniques.
There was good correspondence regarding how to get to the venue, where we could park and eat etc.
I would definitely book another class. The environment where the studio was based is inspiring and in a comfortable setting.

Response from Karen Dawn Curtis:

Kind regards
