Learn wheel throwing basics
This 2.5 hour wheel thrown pottery introduction gets you hands-on and dirty learning wheel throwing pottery basics. (Patrick Swayze not included).
Each student will have their own wheel to work from and following a masterful tutor demonstration its straight down to practice. Out tutors include Nam Tram and Clover from the recent series of The Great Pottery Throwdown,expect to be impressed.
Support will be on hand as you try to get to grips with centering and throwing basics. We keep class sizes small: no more than 5 students to make sure you each get the proper attention. Expect a few pieces to make it below the table into the slop bucket for recycling and about 2 pieces each to make it onto the keeps board. We'll fire and glaze keeps ready for collection in about 4 weeks time.
Please note that we continually add dates to meet demand. This workshop normally runs on a Sunday morning or afternoon. If you're looking for a date in advance that is not on the list, please get in touch as we may be able to schedule it.

Looking to make home made gifts
Or for a little self-pampering?
We love this workshop and we think you will too. We’ll show you how to make some beauty products using easily accessible or natural ingredients. You’ll get to make and take home a beeswax lip salve, an amazing essential oil scented moisturiser for the face or body, facial scrubs and masks using kitchen cupboard ingredients plus a relaxing mint foot lotion.
You’ll not only walk away with a selection of lotions and potions to sample at home but also some comprehensive notes. We reckon these products are as good as if not better than shop-bought versions and with no harsh chemicals! You can also tailor recipes to your own preferences. What’s more they make great gifts and we’ll share some ideas to create the extra wow factor!
Done with potato printing?
Then try something just as easy but with sophistication. The lino print.During this 3 hour workshop we’ll coach students in effective lino cut works of art or experimental patterns for card and textile design. We’ll cover the equipment and materials needed and how to avoid a trip to casualty, We’ll be watching students carefully as they get practiced in using the cutting tools safely. Gaining confidence in the first couple of test prints we’ll then get you onto fabrics, using specialist fabric inks, and design transfer onto a calico bag or a cotton tea towel. Then take home and impress.
This fun workshop is ideal if you’re stuck for gift ideas or are looking for new hobby that you can do at the kitchen table!
