Description

We look forward to welcoming you to Woodsetton Art Pottery established 1986. This is a listing for children 14 and below, accompanied by a full paying adult; the listing for which is also on craft courses site. Please message the potter if you are looking to make a group booking, to discuss numbers and date availability. We can accommodate anything from exclusive sessions for single people up to fourteen sharing seven throwing wheels in the summer months. TASTER WORKSHOPS Allow up to 2 hours for your visit. A fun hour to throw at the wheel taught by a fully post graduate trained teacher and thrower of 30 years in Woodsetton in the West Midlands. Our Victorian workshops have seven wheels spaced in four rooms each with its own access from outdoors. A fun hour of throwing and you can take your favourite 3 pots home with you free of charge on the day, along with instructions on how to preserve and paint your pot or have a go at “pit firing” it at home. Or you can opt to have any or all of your pots fired twice and glazed in our potters kilns to make it useable, dishwasher, microwave and oven proof. This is a lengthy process of expertly finishing, drying, turning, bisque firing, glazing and then further firing your creation, so a charge of £8 per pot is made for this service and you’ll collect your pot that will then last forever about four weeks later (depending on season) Also take time to visit our gallery and pottery materials shop if you’d like to pursue this ancient craft further. Children must be accompanied by a full paying adult (this listing is elsewhere on the craft courses website.) (We regret that due to keeping good distances between visitors we don’t have room at the moment for non participant viewers.)
