Make your own beautiful ceramic art at our Brighton studio
Most people are quite surprised to find that throwing is so much trickier than they make it look on TV and in films.
However, we have several tricks and techniques to help you make the most of your time. Don't imagine that you're going to come away with some towering vase (or even a mug) on your first day. You will end up with something you can use, but for finger-food, not feasting!
It's a lot of fun though, and great to give it a go and get a bit messy!
Because throwing takes so much time to learn, and you need to trim your work as well, you won't be able to do much decoration if you're on a half-day workshop, but we have a range of lovely dipping glazes, and we'll glaze your work with those, so when you pick it up it'll be just the way you imagined it (probably)!
We have two wheels in our studio, so throwing sessions can only be booked for 1 or 2 people.
If throwing is something you find you really love, or you know you want to put some time into learning and mastering the craft, you can try our 'Throwing Package'.
Students often want to learn to throw, but feel like they forget everything in between lessons. The throwing package gives you a free 2.5hr session (worth £25) in our open studio to have a practice, before you come to your next lesson (which we suggest you schedule shortly after).
You don't have to know in advance if you want to take advantage of this offer, and can decide after your first lesson.
Prices & Booking:
If you're wanting to book just for yourself, but would like us to pair you up with another student to make the experience more affordable, this is usually possible, but can't be booked online, so please email us to enquire.
£90 per person for a half day (as part of a pair).
£180 per person for a full day (as part of a pair). Including a nice lunch!
Maximum 2 people for throwing!
My husband and I had a private class with the delightful Alice as a birthday treat.
We had lots of fun and we discovered the pleasure of creating something while switching off from everyday troubles.
The price includes clay, a selection of glazes and firing. Hot drinks and aprons are also provided.
On-street parking is free at weekends and you can park on our drive at other times.
If needed we can post your finished pots to you for a small cost (usually around £7).
