Each student will have their own wheel to work from and following a masterful tutor demonstration its then straight down to practice.
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 8 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.

During the workshop you’ll make at least 6 soap samples. But be warned, some may look and smell too good to use.
