This is how it works:
For the time being, we’re keeping class sizes to a minimum of x4 participants per instructor. We’re blessed with ample studio space and will social distance participants accordingly.
On arrival you will be guaranteed a warm welcome from your professional pottery hosts. Once you’ve had the chance to ‘apron up’ you’ll settle down to watch a potter’s wheel demonstration from your assigned potter. Then it’s down to business.
You’ll each take a turn to make one or two pots on the wheel. Your expert potter is present throughout the experience, gently talking you through the five steps to making a pot. You certainly won’t be bored waiting your turn as the activity makes for a great spectator sport. You’ll have so much fun watching each other, all the time picking up handy tips from your instructor.
The whole experience lasts 1.5 hrs or less if you are a solo participant. If you are lucky or skillful enough to make x2 pots, you’ll be asked to choose your favourite to be fired and glazed. (If you cant decide, the extra pot can be purchased at 1/2 price)
Your masterpiece will need to dry thoroughly before it goes in the kiln to be fired on two separate occasions. This process takes about a month, after which your fabulous ceramic item will be available for collection from the Pottery. P+P can be arranged at £5 per item.
