Have you ever wanted to have a go on a potters wheel?
Our ten week course takes you though the basics of preparing and centring the clay though to how to throw your own bowls and vessels. Taught by professional ceramicists, you will have the chance to develop your skills and produce objects to use at home.
The course is limited to 6 participants per session to maximise your time on the wheel.
“The tutors have been great and have opened up a whole new world to me. So much so, I have bought myself a wheel and a kiln and I am determined to keep practicing and learning. The course has been especially important as it did take a lot for me to actually enrol in the first instance. There is still so much I need to learn and would love to take another course. As I said earlier, the staff have been great and I have made some new friends which is lovely.” Julie Vaughn-Roberts, Ceramics student
