Hello, I'm Sharon, an experienced ceramic sculpture & clay artist, and I regularly host fun & informal pottery sessions from my Pottery studio in the beautiful village of Heskin, Lancashire.
In this 1hr Potters wheel class you will have fun experiencing throwing pots on a potters wheel.
The class runs everyday except Mondays & Sundays and can be attended by those 14yrs+ with an accompanying adult.

You start with a ball of clay and are guided through the basic steps to make a pot. Once you have done your first pot with assistance, you then get a second ball of clay and some practice time to have some fun by yourself. Help is on hand throughout the session should you rather be supported with the second throw.
You take your pots home at the end of the session to air dry OR as an
Optional Extra, you can have your pots fired at a cost of £3 per pot.

Really enjoyed it! The whole lesson was very informative and I knew exactly what to do.
Bought for my husband as a birthday present but I wasn’t going to miss out on all the fun. We tried using the potter’s wheel and it was such great fun, you absolutely must give it a try. It certainly gives us new respect for the talented people on the Pottery Throw-down programme; which is what inspired us to book the hour’s session. Can’t wait to go back to glaze our dishes. Special thanks to our teacher, Hannah, who was so charming and enthusiastic.
Response from The Crafty potter:We cant wait for you to come back & glaze them- was lovely having you in the studio. Thank you for your lovely review.
