We offer a ten week course for Adults, with an extra eleventh class for free to allow everyone to get at least ten weeks in.
I run classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Thursday I run a morning session from 9.30-12.30 and an evening session from 7pm-9.30 pm. On Tuesday I run a morning session 09.30-12.30.
The course cost is £22 per session (as a £220 course) with your eleventh session free. Basic materials, tuition and firing are all included, up to 5 fired pieces (with a choice to pay for extra firing and materials beyond that). Tea and coffee is provided for all classes, and a cake for the morning class. Sometimes there's a slice or two left over for the evening class if you were a bit low on supper!
Even if you miss the start of a term you are welcome to join the course, we can adjust the price accordingly.
Generally, my Thursday morning class is for people with a little more experience, but its not exclusive. If that is the day and time that suits you, you would be more than welcome. I welcome students of all abilities, from no experience to reigniting a favourite hobby or past-time. You may just find you have a real talent for all things ceramic!
From time to time the days and times for the classes will change to include evening classes. To find out more just give us a call 01980 620 328.
Come and enjoy a pottery experience with friends.
Book an individual workshop and enjoy a chance to create whatever you like.
If you're new to potting, just experiment - we can offer plenty of inspiration. If you already have experience we can teach slab-work, coil-making, throwing on the wheel, the basics of sculpting - whatever takes your fancy.
All pots will be fired, glazed and returned to your group organiser. £35 per person, minimum 6 people.
More questions? Not a problem - just get in touch we are happy to answer anything you want to know about what we can offer. We look forward to hearing from you.
We also offer weekend courses approximately three times a year. These consist of two consecutive Saturday mornings where groups of 6-8 people come and create work following the process from end to end. On the first Saturday you will Throw or hand build, or maybe both using raw material. I will show you a variety of techniques for you to try your hand at. On the second Saturday you will generally decorate the work that you created on the first day using slips and glazes.
The course runs from 9.30am - 12.30pm giving you plenty of time to put your imagination to work and to play with the clay, enjoying its versatility and textures. Tea, coffee and cake is provided throughout the morning, with a relaxed yet productive atmosphere your creative self is bound to have a great time.
The cost of a weekend course is £85 per person. This is ideal for a gift experience or a treat for yourself to try out something new and give yourself a break from the everyday grind of life.
The next weekend course is due to run in October. Check back for dates, or get in contact if you need to know with plenty of time in advance. I can provide a gift voucher if you are buying for someone else. We look forward to hearing from you.
