This short course is designed to teach you a higher level of throwing techniques, from clay preparation to finishing and glazing. Over two 3-hour sessions, you will be guided by an experienced potter to hone your wheel throwing skills.

 

This course is built for a small group of students with varying levels of experience. It's for beginners with no knowledge of pottery as well as those wanting to refresh their wheel-throwing skills.

 

There will be a maximum number of 6 people on the course so there will be a strong emphasis on 1-to-1 tuition to help you achieve successful results.

 

You can read more about our two-week wheel throwing course, along with our other Wheel Throwing courses, in our blog post!
