This course is designed for those who would just like to try their hand at throwing or alternatively have had some previous experience perhaps having attended the day course here at Potterydayz. It is also designed with small groups in mind, with the emphasis on as much 1 to 1 tuition as possible and achieving successful and satisfying results. Interestingly, during this 3 hour course our novice, student potters produce some stunning results (see gallery).
Individuals are very welcome to book for themselves or friends in advance and there are larger reductions for booking in pairs, threes and fours, for example, for 2 people £70 each, for 3 people £65 each and for 4 people £60 each.
Four people can be accommodated at the same time.
These sessions make great birthday treats, anniversary surprises, Christmas presents or just a great experience. Sessions can be booked A.M or P.M
Please note I am not a 'hobby' potter but a professional.
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?
Included in the course price is tea, coffee on arrival, the clay, firing and glazing of your best pieces of work.
Also included is a great deal of learning and experienced gained during your time (3 hours) here as the classes are deliberately kept small. Our potters find that 3 hours gives them the opportunity to really make some headway in their learning of the pottery skills.

My husband bought me a voucher for Christmas - what a great gift this turned out to be. I took a friend along and had a brilliant time with Richard. He was patient with our amateur efforts and generous with his knowledge and expertise. He made us a lovely lunch, and we went home happy and rather grubby! A really enjoyable course - I would thoroughly recommend it.
Although booked as a gift for my partner, both myself and our 14 year old son gate crashed her treat and joined in with making some pots. We all had a great time, thanks to Richard's excellent guidance. We are looking forward to being able to return again soon to Potterydayz.
Many thanks for the review Tony- it was a pleasure to meet you all and I look forward to your return to Potterydayz
I did this half day course with two friends. Richard is an exceptional teacher - he keeps things clear, gives you plenty of time to learn and try things out without micromanaging, and is extremely supportive and encouraging. We have already been back a second time (with a fourth friend in tow!) and will certainly be returning again in the future. I cannot recommend this half day course highly enough.
It was a pleasure to see you all here at Potterydayz and I look forward to welcoming you again in the near future. Thank you very much for the review
I surprised my husband on our anniversary with a pottery day.
We had such fun and actually managed to throw a pot or two!
Richard is so easy going, kind and informative.
We loved our day! Thanks Richard at Potterydayz!

Delighted you had an enjoyable experience here at Potterydayz. Many thanks for the review and hopefully we will see you in the future.
Our family bought us vouchers for a half day of pottery. Was extremely pleased with the experience. Richard is very knowledgable and the fact it was just us and him meant we learnt a lot. Looking forwards to painting them once dry. Thank you again Richard.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience which was enhanced with the very attentive, patient and amusing host Richard. Sharing the afternoon with my 13 year old granddaughter was obviously very special but we had such a great time and found the pottery wheel quite addictive. We are both looking forward to glazing our efforts. Thank you.
As a total newbie to pottery I was a little worried about not being able to do anything and coming away disappointed. I couldn’t have been more wrong and my worries were unfounded.
Richard was kind, patient and a brilliant teacher.
I had an absolute blast and can’t wait to see how my items turned out!
It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or if you’re a worrier, Richard was great throughout the whole session!
I booked a Pottery afternoon for a team of colleagues as a celebration for completing a project. The afternoon was great fun and suitable for all the team. Richard was very accommodating with us all and very enthusiastic and informative teaching us the basics of throwing and hand building. We all learnt a great deal from the session and were all able to make something to take away with us. Would recommend as a great fun team activity!
