Service Description

We are delighted to be holding a summer school this year and give the chance for students to learn a new skill in a comprehensive and engaging 8 week course. This course is perfect for beginners who enjoyed the taster class and are interested in developing confidence in their pottery skills, or for those who are looking for an engaging, creative activity for a couple weeks. The 8 week course offers more practise time on the wheel and hence students will leave with strong confidence in their potting abilities. Beginner classes are a mix of closely guided tutoring and self directed development. Students will expand upon their previous knowledge of clay and also learn about clay manipulation at several stages in the process including turning and glazing. Students will have ample time to practise throwing at the wheel and can elect to opt for handbuilding if they so wish and discuss with the tutor. We aim to make sure students leave with more skills, confidence, and several pieces of work that are truly handmade by themselves from start to finish. Before the lesson please cut your nails and wear old clothes or anything you don't mind getting messy! (Clay does come out!) On the day of your lesson please wait at the black gate and call for us on: 07985138854 and we will come and collect you! If you are traveling or self-isolating please be aware before booking and please contact us if you need to amend your booking. Class starts at 6:30pm and will run till 9pm roughly. The remainder of the course fee will be payable on the first day via cash or online banking.
