Half-day pottery wheel throwing workshop for two people in Brighton



Come and get your hands dirty and have a go at throwing on a potter's wheel. A completely different experience to hand-building, throwing is slippery, tricky and lots of fun.

In this three hour workshop I will demonstrate how to throw a simple pot, and you will then get the opportunity to try centering the clay, opening it out and pulling up the walls, before shaping it into a pot. If we have time you will also get to trim your own pots too.

The wheel can take time to learn, so if it's your first time throwing clay, you may need some help from me to make a serviceable piece that can be used and decorated! It's a lot of fun though, and great to give it a go and get a bit messy!

The pieces you make will be fired and dipped in your choice of glaze and you can collect them or I can arrange to have them posted to you.

The course can run from 10am - 1pm or 2 - 5pm. Please contact me to find out what dates I have available - I will try to be as flexible as I can but usually run workshops on Saturdays or Sundays.

I only have two wheels, so can only accommodate two people at these workshops.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials, firing costs and refreshments. Free parking is available on my street at weekends.
