About the Course

This one day throwing workshop takes place at The Queens Park Art Centre in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

The pottery workshop can accommodate 5 students at a time. Clay and tools are provided and the fee includes the firing of one finished thrown pot. If you want to fire more pots then this can be arranged at a small cost.

Aprons are available, but it is recommended that you bring your own apron or clothes that you don't mind getting clay on. It comes off very easily.

This course is designed for beginners wishing to learn the basics of throwing a cylinder - the basis of most thrown pots. More experienced throwers can be shown more advanced techniques.

The workshop will run subject to two people being booked for each day. If you would like to book a place on one of the above dates or if you have any questions regarding the workshops you can contact me through the contact form above.

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.

Want to review this course?

A warm and friendly class. Charlie explains the process of throwing really well. For a first time thrower I managed to produce cylinders good enough to make a mug, with Charlie's help I even had a go at pulling a handle. A thoroughly enjoyable day.
