Pottery Wheel Taster Private Session



Have you ever fancied trying your hand at throwing a pot on a wheel?
Well now's your chance!

You can pop along and spend a fun hour and a half having a go on the wheel, expertly led by Alison.

Please click on the 'message the tutor' button BEFORE booking to check times that are available as I will accommodate more than one session per day (morning, afternoon or evening). Please note sessions held on a Thursday will only be day sessions before 3pm.

There are 2 wheels available so why not make it a day to remember with your other half, partner or friend.
This is suitable for beginners level.

You will be able to create a few pots which you will leave to be dried, fired and glazed (unless you wish to return to paint them yourself at £10 extra) before either you come and collect or they are sent to you at an extra cost for the postage, a few weeks later.

Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Included is the cost of the clay and the glazes as well as all firings required.
Refreshments of tea, coffee and biscuits are available.

What an excellent experience . Alison such a lovely bubbly person. Extremely patient and helpful. Dealt superbly with my daughter who has Asperger’s and a physical disability. We both thoroughly enjoyed the lesson and are eager to go back. Thank you Alison!

We had an extremely fun time learning how to use the potters wheel. Alison was great at explaining what we needed to do and then kept us on track when we had a go ourselves. Nothing was too much trouble and we came away fully enthused to have another go in the future.

Thank you for your lovely words. It was a fun session and I'm glad you both enjoyed it so much! 😊

My sister and I had a wonderful afternoon of pottery, Alison is a brilliant teacher and we had a great time. I booked this as a Christmas gift for my sister and when we were unable to go on the date I had booked, Alison was really good about it and we rearranged with no problems. Overall it was a great experience!

What can I say? This was such an amazing afternoon. We had 1.5 hours of pottery throwing on the wheels. We both managed to make 3 pots each. Alison was awesome, such a great teacher and incredibly friendly. I'd recommend this to anyone.

Alison was a fantastic teacher and such a lovely person! She was so accomodating, made sure we used the time we had to ensure we had something to show for our efforts and she also makes a stellar hot chocolate! Thoroughly enjoyed the lesson and would definitely book another sometime. Would recommend this class without hesitation :)
