Throwing Courses

Our one-day courses are the perfect start for people wanting to try their hand at throwing clay on a potter’s wheel.

We run these courses in small class sizes to ensure you get as much one on one tuition as possible.

The courses are usually held on Saturdays and Sundays and run from 9.30am until 3.30pm.
