This weekend taster course is over two days and is a great introduction to pottery. The course is aimed at complete beginners who want to have go.

The course is practical and introduces you to a range of hand building, and decorating techniques and you will have the opportunity to try working on the wheel. You will work in our pottery studio making a range of ceramic forms which you will learn to decorate and prepare for firing. You will edit your pieces choosing up to two for glaze decoration and firing. The two-day course allows time to try a range of creative and practical techniques and gives us time to ‘bisque’ fire in between classes.

This is the one to take as a taster if you are not sure you want to commit to a longer class.

The course is taught in a really relaxed, creative and supportive environment.

Day 1 is the making day and starts at 9.30am and finishes at 12.30pm*

Day 2 is the decoration, glazing in preparation for final firing and starts at 9.30am and finishes around 12.30pm*

Your work will be ready for collection at 12.30 on the first date of the following months class.. This gives us time to dry and glaze fire your work.

*Please note these times are from January 2024.

This course costs £130 per person is suitable for complete beginners and for people who need a refresher who haven’t practiced for a while. Materials and firing costs are included.
