Weekly Throwing Classes

Courses run across three terms, autumn (Sept-Dec), spring (Jan-Easter) and summer (Easter-July). Terms are around twelve weeks and include a half term break.

Classes are of mixed ability from beginner to intermediate and we aim to provide a supportive and sociable environment in which to work.


Each class has a maximum of 8 students who each have access to their own wheel. You'll be guided through the process of throwing, trimming, decorating and glazing your pieces according to your experience and skill level. There will be regular class demonstrations as well as one-to-one instruction as appropriate. 

5 Week Beginners Throwing Course 

Open to 12+ years if accompanied by adult


Saturday 15th June to Sat 13th July 10-12pm.


Our beginner's class is specifically aimed at those students who have no previous experience on a potters wheel.  Have you ever thought that you’d like to have a go at throwing? Then this is the course for you.

You'll be shown step by step every aspect of throwing: from preparing the clay, to the different techniques used to create a form on the wheel. The course will also cover basic decoration techniques and glazing. Your work will be fired in our kilns and by the end of the course you can expect to have created a number of pieces to take home.

This class is designed specifically for those students who have already attended one of our beginner's classes. If you have not attended one of these, then you will need to have some basic experience of throwing. Please contact us if you are unsure!

This 5 week course will focus on jugs and lidded containers and will be run by the same tutors Liz and Alisha.
