Pottery taster session


About the Course

Our taster sessions run from 1pm until 3.30pm and cost £50 which includes refreshments. They take place on Saturdays. Everything will be provided for you, so you can just relax and enjoy yourself. You will have a quick tour of the studio before being shown a variety of different hand building techniques.

Next you will get the chance to make something. A pot or small vase is a good starting point and is an enjoyable way to help you get used to handling clay. You can also try out some different ways of adding texture and decoration to personalise your work.

After a quick break for refreshments (tea, coffee etc and cakes/biscuits) you will have a go on the pottery wheel. We have 15 wheels, and this is a really fun introduction to throwing.

At the end of the session you will be able to choose three pieces to keep. These will be fired and can be picked up at a later stage.

If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

My sister booked this for me and her for my birthday. It was really well organised and the teacher was absolutely lovely. We had a very fun afternoon and I’d definitely like to do it again!
