A day at the wheel.

Very fond of the class of 22nd September 2018 :)

Seven nicer individuals you’d be hard pressed to meet, spent the day learning how to make pottery on the potter’s wheel. It was a productive day with everybody filling their boards with fantastic shapes and forms, in fact we’ve never seen the pile of disregarded ‘learning’ pots look so small.

At the close, we ask participants to select their two or three favorite pieces to be fired, glazed and posted out in a months time. A difficult task at the best of times but made even harder by the sheer volume of super shapes. Most people couldn’t bare to part with their creations and payed the extra to have them finished in the kiln.

If you fancy spending a day behind the wheel please take a look at our web page dedicated to our one day and weekend courses. £130 for the day and £240 for the weekend.

Normally, we see a lull in the number of ‘would be potters’ and adjust the frequency of workshops accordingly. Not so this year! June has been as busy as any other month with hoards of participants beating a trail to our door.

We provide a complimentary lunch and participants have really enjoyed picnicking on the Pottery lawn in the Summer sunshine.

Here’s photo evidence of the potting public’s unwavering desire to make pottery in flaming June.
