Description

The Potter's Wheel half day course at Siramik Studio is a great fun skill to learn. The studio is light and spacious with 6 potter's wheels and set in the beautiful Welsh countryside. During the COVID-19 period you are required to bring your own apron and mask, all tools and materials will be provided. The course includes includes : Preparing the clay, Learning how to centre the clay on the wheel, Creating a cylinder from this centred clay and Making shapes from the cylinder. You will happily make 4 to 5 pots during the half day. Two of the pots you make will be fired and glazed for free, if you would like any more of your pots we charge a small firing fee. Most courses take place in the morning, though afternoons can be offered by arrangement. Beginners and more advanced are all welcome. Try it, you might like it!!! 4 star in-house accommodation available for the one day and weekend courses - please contact for availability. Yoka Kilkelly, potter and pottery teacher has been making ceramics from a very young age. Siramik is now a long established, award winning teaching facility but also produces it's own range of hand thrown and hand decorated domestic tableware for you to use, hold and enjoy. Historic sites, the Botanic Garden of Wales, leisure facilities, beach and physical activity centres are all within a 20 mile radius from us. The nearest main town, Carmarthen, is a 15 minute drive away and there is a great provision of restaurants and bars.

Learning the technique how to create pots on the potter's wheel. Good fun! Always a good cup of coffee or tea with (hopefully) home baked biscuits and all materials and equipment.

Having been given a piece of clay when I was 6 years old, I knew what I wanted to do. My dad thought I needed a "proper job" and I became a secretary. Soon I wanted to go back to college and study for my degree. A local pottery offered me a job as a thrower and after several years employed I was able to and given the opportunity to open my own studio. Teaching and sharing my knowledge about clay and all its workings on the potter's wheel and hand building are now paramount to Siramik.
