These classes are for all abilities. During the first few weeks I will take you through basic techniques in hand-building, decoration and wheel work.

  • How to make pots on a wheel (throwing)

  • Hand-building techniques including pinch pots, slab building, coiling and using moulds

  • Decorative techniques on green-ware (unfired clay) including Sgraffito, inlay, paper resist, printing and stamping

  • Glazing and decorative techniques on bisque-ware (work fired once)

What is included?

  • Access to all tools and materials

  • Use of pottery wheel (I have 2 wheels so students will take it in turns)

  • A notebook for jotting down designs, instructions etc.

  • Refreshments

  • Firing of all work, either within the 10 weeks or within 2 weeks of the end date

What should I bring?

  • Wear comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting clay on

  • Any tools you may want to use


Refunds and cancellations:

Please choose carefully. Due to a limited class size I can only issue a refund if the place is reassigned. In the unlikely event that I have to cancel a class, I will arrange another date for students to attend. Your purchase is in acceptance of these terms.
