Cancellation Policy

This course is designed to teach you a higher level of throwing techniques, from clay preparation to finishing and glazing. You will be guided by an experienced potter to hone your skills over a 6-week period.

 

You will need to have attended a clay or wheel taster class prior to booking onto a course. If you have pottery experience gained elsewhere, give us a call as it may be that you can join anyway!

 

Worried you cannot attend one of the sessions due to a pre-booked engagement or a last minute emergency? Don't worry, we offer a "Course Catch Up 1-2-1" at only £20/hour, for those who can't make a class, to make sure you don't miss out on any learning.

 

"This course was honestly just the best experience. I have always wanted to get into pottery but I'm now completely and utterly hooked. David was just brilliant. I'm going to come on another course in a couple of months and I can't wait." Miss R, Maidenhead

 

This course is built for a small group of students with varying experience, there will be a strong emphasis on 1 to 1 tuition to help you achieve successful results. Come and join us!
