Throwing & hand-building pottery weekend courses



Pottery weekend courses in York: throwing on the wheel and hand building tuition.

After graduating from Sunderland University with a BA (Hons) in Ceramics & gaining a teaching qualification, Catherine regularly teaches both beginners & intermediate in throwing on the wheel & hand-building. She works from her Studio at home, making both Ceramic animals, that are raku or smoke fired, or playful slipware Pottery, that is both fun & practical.

If you choose a throwing session we will start off with cylinders & bowl shapes & if you would like more sessions, eventually build up to plates & teapots, but sessions can be tailored to individual requirements.

Lessons includes clay, slips, glazes & kiln firings. Once fired, work can be picked up in the next 2-3 weeks, or posted for an extra charge.

Please note I only have one wheel, but if 2 or more people come, they take it in turns, whilst the other one hand-builds & it means I can give that person my undivided attention.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All equipment provided, but bring an apron & cold drinks & packed lunch if studying from longer session.
Tea & coffee will be provided.
