– 1 Day Wheel Throwing Workshops

A Full Day Throwing On The Wheel

Our one day wheel throwing workshops are for those who want to really immerse themselves in how to throw pots on the wheel.

Our class size is small (max. 6 people, min. 3 people) and the day includes a home cooked 2 course lunch & refreshments throughout. If the weather permits we can eat outside on the patio and take in the view and if not then we can set up our tables to relax and eat in the studio.

We spend most of the time throwing but we take time for lunch and later on to dry your favourite 6 pots to ‘leather-hard’ so you can decorate them with coloured slip (liquid clay) before leaving them with us for glazing and firing.

Our one 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 48 hours is required and please advise of any food allergies/intolerances at time of booking.

Collection/Delivery Of Your Finished Pottery

We fire about every 5-6 weeks (when our kiln will be full). 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.
