What is included?

This taster experience will introduce the basic skills of working with clay on the potter's wheel, providing you with an understanding of what it takes to use the potter's wheel to create a pot. 

You will receive one-to-one tuition, step-by-step, therefore no previous experience is required. 

You will make one pot as shown in the photos. 

Help and assistance will be provided by the tutor as and when necessary during the process to ensure you create a pot.

All necessary tools and equipment will be provided – including aprons.

When can I take it home?

If you choose air-dry clay you take it home the same day and paint it with acrylics once it has dried out.

If you choose fired-clay, you take it home 2 weeks later after it has been dipped in clear glaze and fired... OR come back after 2 weeks/1st firing & decorate it with our coloured glazes, it will then be fired a 2nd time to make it food-safe and ready for everyday use at home a week later.
