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 them look no further than our pot throwing and making courses. 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 and sculptor with over 20 years' professional experience of throwing clay pots and producing all manner of objects.

I regularly teach primary and secondary children producing a range of models like wide mouth frogs, fishy characters, spidersaurs and other traditional hand built pots. This course will give you and your family a head start on some of the essential techniques required to produce your very own work.

Come along with your children, spouse, friends, grand children or or book in advance for a perfect treat and really ignite the imagination! The course fee is for a child 6 years + and a parent or other senior family member. (*2nd child comes at a reduced rate.)
We offer half a day for parent/adult and child at just £85, 2 adults and 2 children at just £160. One adult and 2 children £125.
Please contact me to enquire about costs for a full day course.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

There is 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 and glaze firing of your best work.

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!
