Escape for a weekend of pottery in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside!
Our state-of-the art studios are nestled in the tranquil fields surrounding the magnificent Castle Ashby House.
Day 1: Learn basic throwing techniques: how to centre clay on the wheel and how to make simple cylinders and bowls
Day 2: Learn to trim ('turn') your thrown pieces to refine them, and apply various surface-decoration techniques prior to firing.
What's included in the price?
All clay, tools, equipment and aprons are provided.
A light lunch will also be served on both days, and tea/coffee will be available throughout.
At the end of day 2, you will be able to select what colour you would like you pieces to be glazed and we will then fire and glaze them for you ready for collection (no charge). Alternatively we can post your pieces to you for an additional fee.
