About the Course

Dear all..

I am suspending my Throwing Workshops for a short while until the end of July or beginning of August due to ill health.

I hope to be sorted out and back to full fitness by the end of July / beginning of August and will begin taking bookings again then.

A big thank you to all my past and present students, I hope to see some of you again later in the year as well as many new potential throwers !


I run one day Throwing Workshops from my studio at Westbury Arts Centre in Milton Keynes.

The workshops are run with just two people. This ensures you get a high level of tuition and attention throughout the day and means the day can be tailored to suit your needs whether you are a complete novice or someone with more experience who is looking to improve their skills.

The workshops will run subject to two people being booked for each day.

You can book a single place and be paired with someone else for the day or book both places for yourself and a friend or partner.

I can possibly do days in the week if people wish, please contact me to discuss mutually suitable dates.

If you would like to book a place or if you have any questions regarding the workshops you can contact or phone me via the details above.

My Throwing Workshops have booked up really quickly this year !
I will be adding more dates for the rest of the year very soon.

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.

What's included in the price?

Included in the day is all the clay and materials used and I fire up to 6 of the pots you have thrown on the day. All tools, aprons etc. are supplied, though you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.

Tea, Coffee and cakes are on supply throughout the day though you are asked to bring your own packed lunch.

Want to review this course?

What a fantastic day! Myself & a friend were treated like royalty, with cakes, biscuits & tea on tap. A full day of throwing was overseen with endless patience by Mark, who was lovely & constantly encouraging us both to keep throwing. It was a fantastic experience in a hugely characterful environment. An inspirational day, and one that I fully intend to repeat. HAVE A GO YOU WON'T REGRET IT!!!
