These throwing workshops are for those who wish to brush up their skills on the potter's wheel, or for complete beginners who can come along and try the potter's wheel for the first time.
You can keep a maximum of two pots. We will recycle any other pots your have made. The pots you keep will be glazed for you and you can pick them up a few weeks later. This is included in the price.
For current students at The Clay Studio, you can choose how many pots to keep, with the rest being recycled, and you can turn and glaze these retained pots in your weekly class.

Having never been even in the vicinity of a potters wheel in my life I was amazed to successfully produce multiple pots with Susanna's guidance and eventually completely on my own. What a fabulous morning with tangible results, beautifully glazed, in use, at my table. I am looking forward to attempting another "throwing morning" to improve my skills but it was brilliantly led; Susanna was calm, open and beyond helpful. Thank you for introducing me to a wonderful past-time.
Response from The Clay Studio:So pleased you enjoyed it Deborah! Thank you.
As complete beginners to throwing, my daughters and I signed up for a half day workshop with Susanna. We were thrilled with the experience and results. Susanna was an excellent guide and teacher. Thoroughly recommended.
Response from The Clay Studio:Many thanks Gill. I'm glad you all enjoyed it.
I really enjoyed the clay throwing course. The instruction was clear and helpful. Having done GCSE pottery 30 years ago, I had some very distant memories to go on, but felt like I progressed well through the morning and came away with 2 pots I was very pleased with. Others had had no experience and also progressed well. Thank you, it was a great experience!
Response from The Clay Studio:It's never too late to make a comeback! Thanks for your kind comments.
What a super way to spend a rainy Saturday morning! Being very out of practice with any throwing I used to do I found Susana a calm and very encouraging teacher with a very good way of imparting her knowledge. The morning flew past. I feel that I have learnt much more about different techniques and am inspired to keep going. Thanks Susana, I look forward to taking more courses.
Response from The Clay Studio:Thanks Catriona. Susana and I really appreciate your comments.
Susanna has a very special way of teaching how to throw on the wheel. She is very calm and instructive and somehow manages to always gets people to achieve great results. I would highly recommend her to anyone from beginners to more advanced potters.
Response from The Clay Studio:Much appreciated B!
