We have spaces on our Monday tutored courses and Wednesday evening sessions 7pm - 9pm you can book on these via the booking section below.

We also provide tutored pot throwing sessions on both an electric wheel and 2 traditional kick wheels.
We offer these as 1 hour sessions on a Tuesday, Friday and Saturday Mornings between 10am -1pm.

The pottery process involves 2 firings, one after you've created something your happy with to set the shape
(please allow 4-5 days drying plus 1 day firing) We try are best to have your makings fired for the following
weeks session but larger or thicker creations may take longer to dry to prevent it exploding in the kiln. 

You would then return to decorate your creations with coloured glazes to be fired once again, this also
requires time to dry plus 24hrs to fire and cool down. 

Makings are kept for 2 weeks after their final firing for you to collect.
