THREE Hour Potter’s Wheel Experience

Have you always wanted to try making a pot on a potter's wheel? Maybe you have a friend or family member who has and you’re looking for a special gift experience for them? Here is the perfect experience for you…

You will spend 3 hours learning the basics of throwing on an electric potter’s wheel. With expert one-to-one tuition you will be introduced to the wheel with a demonstration and careful explanation of the different stages of making: centring, opening out and pulling up. You will then try the wheel at your own pace with as much or as little guidance as you like.

The experience runs from 10am – 1pm with a short break for a hot drink as and when required. Lunch is not included so you are welcome to bring a packed lunch.

At the end of the session, select your favourite pieces (maximum of 3) which Linda will then glaze fire for you in a basic white glaze. Please allow up to three weeks after your experience for the collection of your finished pieces.

Cost

£75 Includes refreshments, all materials, and firing of up to 3 pots.
