Wheel Throwing Pottery Taster Class


About the Course


This 2-hour workshop is a gentle introduction to the meditative craft of throwing pottery on the wheel. We will start by covering some essential theory while learning how to handle and prepare clay. You will, then, be guided through all the fundamental steps of the process and have the chance to create your own pieces on the wheel. The class is suitable for adults who are starting out on their clay journey or just want to try a new playful way of making.

Our light and airy studio lives on the first floor of a historic listed building offering plenty of character and a tranquil atmosphere. We are located in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter, easily accessible by foot from Birmingham city centre or by public transport.

Me and my husband attended this class on 1st Feb 20, and it was excellent! Chris was really informative and patient with us all. We were total beginners.

We made two items each on the wheel, and it was so much fun! We both had a great time, and are now considering one of Chris's 8 week courses, when they are next available.

We watched Chris make a vase, and you could really tell he had a passion for it.

Such a good workshop.
