Description

This 2.5 hour session is an opportunity for participants to get a 'taste' for wheel throwing. Under the guidance of an experienced tutor participants will be taken through the basics of wheel throwing on a revolving pottery wheel - how to prepare clay for the wheel, centre clay and throw small forms. This offers participants the chance to try out the age-old-technique of forming pots, either as a one-off activity or to see if it is something you would like to pursue further. Buff stoneware clay is used in this workshop. This workshop will have a maximum of 10 participants.

This workshop includes all materials, and the glazing and firing of work created. This includes two firings (bisque and glaze) and glazing (as a group, students can choose two stoneware glazes) by our technician. Our turnaround time for work to be ready for collection is approximately two weeks. NPS staff will contact students when work is ready for collection.

Please bring along your own towel and apron to the workshop, wheel throwing can be messy!

Trying the wheel was harder than it looked, but I really enjoyed the experience. Clare was patient and very informative. I think the price was reasonable, and I would definitely recommend it to people who were looking to try their hand at pottery.
