Potters Wheel at the Crafty Potter Lancashire

suitable for children aged 7 years & older


Hello, I'm sharon, an experienced self taught ceramic sculpture & clay artist, and a guest tutor for Clayshare. I regularly run fun & informal pottery sessions from my studio in Heskin, Lancashire.

In this Potters wheel class you will have fun experiencing throwing pots on a potters wheel. An Individual session lasts around 60-90 minutes.

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.

All our classes are taught 1:1, unless you come as a couple or part of a group. We have two potters wheels in the studio. The classes run everyday except Mondays.

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 then return to paint them in the studio at a cost of £3.50 per pot.

Note: Children need to be aged 7 years and over so that they can reach the peddles safely & follow the instructions given to them.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
