Potters Wheel Beginners Workshop

May 10, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Sunday May 10th 10 am – 12 noon

Ever watched fascinated as potters make a spinning wheel and a lump of clay into a pot?

Here is your chance to try your hand at making a pot on the Potter’s Wheel.

Come and join our 2 hour throwing workshop (“throwing” is the technical term for making something out of clay on the wheel).

You will need an apron and a bath towel (not for bathing, but to put over your lap!) but everything else is provided. Not only that but we will finish off your masterpiece and glaze and fire it for you ready to take home around three weeks later!

What will you make?

Well, throwing on the potter’s wheel is a master craftsman type of activity, so as a beginner having a go at it for the first time, you might make a cup or bowl, it might be a bit wonky, but YOU will have made it!!! You will achieve a take home piece and will no doubt have a heap of fun getting muddy, and learning the basics of centering, opening and drawing up the sides!

This workshop is fully inclusive of materials, us trimming and glazing your work and two firings.

Please Note – in these uncertain times we are uncertain of when we will be able to resume holding workshops – this workshop is scheduled, however tickets will not be opened up until we know we will be able to deliver it!
