– 1/2 Day Wheel Throwing Workshops

Learn The Basics Of Throwing On The Wheel

Our 1/2 day wheel throwing workshops are for those who want to get a taster of what throwing pots on the wheel is all about.

Our class size is small (max. 6 people, min. 3 people) and includes refreshments and our focus is on how to centre, make and perfect basic shapes on the wheel and adding spouts and handles.

Towards the end of the workshop you can choose your favourite 4 pots to leave with us for glazing and firing.

Our half-day throwing workshops are suitable for complete beginners or those who have thrown before, however, they are not particularly suitable for younger children due to the nature and length of the class.

Booking & Payment

Please either CLICK HERE to see our workshop dates and book on-line or Contact Us if you would like to pay by card or on-line directly into our bank account.

Cash or card payment on the day is fine for extras such as leaving extra pots for glazing and firing, pottery purchases or deciding to go for delivery rather than collection.

Please note: Advance booking of at least 24 hours is required.

Collection/Delivery Of Your Finished Pottery

We fire about every 5-6 weeks (when our kiln is full). Pottery must be dry before it can go in the kiln which can take 4-5 days (depending on the weather) and our biscuit and glaze firings also take about 4-5 days. 

If you live locally or if a firing is due while you are still in the area you can come and collect your pottery when it is ready.

If a firing is not due while you are still here then you will need delivery which is £20.00 which covers all your/your groups’ pottery to one mainland UK address. If you need delivery to more than one address it is £20 per extra delivery.

If you are booking on-line you need to book the ‘ticket including delivery’ option for the number of separate deliveries you require. If you only need one delivery you only need to include this option on one ticket.

Cancellation/Date Transfer/No Show

We understand that plans can change and things can go wrong so please, before booking with us, check out our Cancellation/Date Transfer/No Show Policy and make sure you are happy with that.
