Service Description

Taster sessions are ideal for beginners who want to give pottery a go, and are a stepping stone to our longer form courses. Half your time will be spent throwing on the wheel and the other half will be spent handbuilding. Within 90 minutes on the wheel we will teach you the fundamentals of manipulating clay with the COP method (center, open, pull). You will practice your new skills by shaping your work to your discretion. You will become increasingly independent as tutors gradually wean you off their help so by the time you’re making your final pot it will truly be a work of your own making. Throwing will definitely test your patience, but the second half of the class will be the much less intense art of handbuilding. You will learn traditional techniques of working with clay like coiling, slabbing, and pinch pot, to develop a practice that embraces organic forms. At the end of the session you’ll choose which pots you want to keep and choose to glaze then a selection of transparent, white, or dark blue. Each pot will cost £5 to glaze and be fired twice. The cost of the pots and remainder of the class fee can be paid with cash or via online banking on the day.
