This class is designed to introduce you to the exciting world of wheel thrown pottery.
Master potter Clare Shannon will lead you through the basics of clay selection and preparation, tool selection, and operation of the pottery wheel. This class is purposefully presented as a small group ensuring you have enough time with Clare to learn enough to be comfortable when starting regular classes. All materials and firing in these classes are included in the cost.  You will be contacted via email when your work is available to be collected.  Oxart will hold your pots for a limited time before they are recycled.

What a great class. Small size and personalised support. Managed to make some lovely pots with no experience at all.

I thoroughly enjoyed my introductory class to pottery at Oxart. The teacher Claire was informative, fun and full of energy. Considering this was her 2nd class for the day, you still couldn't of asked for a better teacher. Class size was small. Venue was great. Thank you Oxart.
