About the Course

Ditch the devices! If your children spend too much time on their electronic devices and you would love to have more quality time with your children, look no further than our holiday, pot throwing and making courses. Imagine, a whole day during which your children and you share a unique experience, learning how to throw pots and produce some fantastic outcomes. We can accommodate families of 2- 5 members

Enjoy the opportunity for you and your family to laugh, communicate and enjoy a journey of discovery together, without the stresses and strains of everyday life. Many young people report that after a day spent without the shackles of social media they love the feeling of being refreshed and the sense of freedom that learning a new skill provides. I am a qualified ceramicist with over 20 years' experience of throwing clay pots and producing all manner of objects in clay.

I regularly work in schools with primary and secondary children producing a range of models like wide mout frogs, puffer fish, spiders and many more. This course will give you and your family a head start on some of the essential techniques required to produce your very own first pot, of your own design.

Come along with your children, spouse or friends, or purchase a CraftCourses gift voucher and at last give a gift that really does thrill and ignite the imagination! Our day courses are designed for 2, 3 people 4 or 5 people to enjoy together as a family-parents,children and grand parents alike. The course fee is for a child 6 years + and a parent or other senior family member. (*2nd child comes half price until Christmas)
We offer half a day (9:30 am - 12:30 pm or 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm) for parent and child at just £110

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

Included in the price is a free lunch of home grown and made vegetable soup and locally baked bread or feel free to bring your own packed lunch if you prefer or have any dietary needs. There is also an inexhaustible supply of coffee, tea, water and biscuits.

There are no hidden charges - everything required for a fulfilling and memorable pot throwing and modelling experience is included in the price; that includes, tools, use of the potter's wheel, apron, clay, tuition and biscuit firing of your best work

The courses are designed for two - five people. I keep the classes small as I like to maximize the amount of personal tuition you receive and the amount of time you spend on the potter's wheel. This course is highly interactive, fun and you will learn lots!
