Pottery: Throwing Taster Session
Sunday 10 September at 10:00 am
Suitable for adults and kids (11+)
Taster sessions are the perfect way to introduce yourself to pottery. In this introductory class you will be guided through the basics of throwing clay on the potter’s wheel. These classes feature a maximum of three students. You will be taught how to prepare your clay, how to centre it on the wheel, how to pull up the walls of your piece to create form and how to use the tools provided.
Please be prepared for a few disasters before you get to grips fully with the potter’s wheel, it’s perfectly normal for beginners and all part of the learning process.
You will keep your best thrown pot from the session. After it has become leather hard the piece will be finished, fired and glazed for you. There will be the opportunity to choose a glaze from the select range of studio dipping glazes.
Once your piece has completed its second firing and is ready for collection you will be notified by email, approximately 6 to 8 weeks later.
Have fun creating something you will cherish with this natural, tactile and versatile material. Pottery is the perfect antidote to our frenetic modern lives. You cannot rush clay. Be present and focused and allow yourself to disconnect. I look forward to welcoming you to the studio.
