This is an introductory course to deliver the basics of wheel work and to get you started on your throwing career! Throughout the six weeks you will be working towards being able to center clay on the wheel, then learning to throw bowls (fit to use afterwards!) while also ‘turning’ pots on the wheel (carving and shaping the bases when they are semi-dry). Later on, you will be throwing mugs and attaching handles. We’ll also cover techniques in slip application to decorate your work. The finished, turned and decorated pots will be bisque-fired, coated in transparent glaze and then glaze-fired before being ready for collection.

This course is fully focused on techniques of the potter’s wheel, no hand-work.

There are a maximum of 7 students per course ensuring that everyone gets a nice bit of attention while learning how to throw pots!

There is quite a bit of hand-eye coordination and concentration required to learn to throw pots on the wheel. For this reason, these courses are for people aged 16 and over.

Thursdays from 11am to 1pm.

Lessons run for 2 hours per week for 6 weeks. Doors will be opened 5 minutes before the class starts in order to allow for class preparation.

The cost includes all materials, firings, etc. for work that is made and finished during the class times.


If you have not received a confirmation email after booking a space on a course, please check your spam mail. We have gone to the upmost effort to ensure that confirmation emails go directly to your email inbox but some are still ending up in spam folders.

Due to the small class numbers of 7 students per course, we are unable to change, swap or reschedule classes after you have booked. There is no refund for students who are unable to attend classes for any reason. If you have booked on to the course but are no longer able to attend, you can nominate someone else to attend the course in your place.

Due to the costs involved with putting on this course, if less than three people book on it may need to be postponed. In the unlikely event of this happening you will be offered another place on another course. If this does not suit you, you will be offered a full refund.
