This is a Pottery Throwing Course for 2 people
The pottery is small but provides a great opportunity for individual tuition This could include a mixture of throwing on the wheel and hand-building, with time to concentrate on one or the other. A variety of techniques can be explored to decorate your work. Stoneware clay is used and fired in an electric kiln with a choice of glazes.
In a full day class you will be throwing before lunch, and decorating tiles or a dish in the afternoon.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day course with Rowena. Rowena is an excellent teacher, explaining and demonstrating each technique before we tried it for ourselves, then staying close at hand to help as needed - but without taking over. Rowena is very encouraging and motivating and explains the rationale behind each step as you go along. We felt a real sense of achievement at how far we progressed over the course to the 2 days. We would wholeheartedly recommend this course.
This 2 person pottery session is fantastic. We spent the morning throwing our pots. We had four attempts at them on the wheel. It's well worth doing a one to one/ two person session because you pick so much more up than woth a large groul. Rowena is a brilliant teacher. There's always the concern with these courses that it might take a 'create what you feel' approach but Rowena explained the technique perfectly and we could see improvement in our pots as we went along. We really felt we had learnt something. In the afternoon we made a dish in a mould which gave us the opportunity to paint and decorate and get a bit creative. Rowena is going to glaze our pots and we'll pick them up in a month or so. This course is definitely well worth it, can't recommend it enough if you are looking at trying some pottery.
