Throwing on the wheel 

This is the pottery you see in films and on TV. 

It takes a lot of time and practice to get good

at throwing, and as a beginner in a one-off

workshop you will end up with two or three

small bowls you could use for olives or jewellery.

However: You will absolutely love that little bowl! 



If outcomes matter to you more than experience you should choose this. You could make a mug, a vase, a bowl, a decorative tealight holder, a wall hanging, or a little otter with a cactus for hair. Or anything else you can dream up! 

Here are some pieces made in hand-building workshops by our students These are reasonably representative of the sort of thing you could create. 

Once you're done, you'll have the option to try using underglazes (they work a lot like standard acrylic paints) or choose from our range of dipping glazes. 

Can't choose won't choose

You can just about fit both throwing and hand-building into a half-day, as long as you're happy with only making two small and relatively simple pieces. You wouldn't have time to make a mug as well as try throwing, but you could manage a smaller, simpler pinch-pot. And we can negotiate things on the day as well.

You can't fit throwing and a body-bits mug into a half-day. Sorry! 

For a full day booking you definitely don't have to choose; you can do both!


However, in order to try both throwing and hand-building you either need to book a workshop for 2 people, or be in a smallish group of friends. 

*If you want to try both types of pottery, choose a throwing workshop when booking online. Or you can just email us with your request.
