Wheel-throwing taster session for two people - beginner level

Jo Davies is a professional ceramicist, all classes take place at her studio. She works with assistants to deliver beginner classes but all Master Classes are given by her.

About the Course

If you've always wanted to have a go at throwing then this is a good place to start. This session is 2 hours long and is designed for two people so is a great shared experience for two friends or a couple.
One of our tutors will teach you how to create a simple cylinder shape that you could use as either cups, flower pots or for serving food. Your tutor will use demonstrations, discussions and hands-on assistance to guide you through the process. Due to the class being so small you will make more progress than in a large class setting as your tutor can help frequently if needed.

Saturday classes are available and run at the following times: 9:30-11:30am 12:30-2:30pm 3-5pm

Weekday classes are available at flexible times and dates and all classes are subject to availability.

The Jo Davies Studio is the professional studio for the ceramicist Jo Davies and is set inside the Chocolate Factory Workshops in Stoke Newington near Dalston. Jo Davies designs and makes her own range of porcelain which can be seen at the studio. She works with other tutors to offer Beginners and Master Classes alongside her own practice. The Chocolate Factory is a beautiful environment for learning and a secret London gem.

Items made during the session will be fired and finished at the studio and should be collected at a later date. This usually takes about 5 weeks.
