About the Course

We will cover basic techniques such as pinch pots, coil pots, slab pots, slip casting, throwing, decorating and glazing your pieces. These sessions will let you experience the most popular basic techniques enabling you to be more selective when you progress to the intermediate sessions. The Intermediate class runs at the same times as the beginners. It is for people with some pottery experience. You can either join in with the beginners lead sessions or do their own projects with my guidance. I have two pottery wheels for those who wish to specialise in throwing.

Classes run on a Tuesday 1-3pm and Thursday evening 6.30-8.30pm with the exception of school holidays and January/February. Start anytime!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

For the beginners all materials are included. Intermediate students are charged £4.95 per kg for clay and firing. Tea and coffee available FOC cakes available to purchase.

It’s so brilliant to create pots and other items every week.
I managed to make a pot on the wheel last night...Miranda is a marvellous teacher!
