We will have the clay all prepared for you and will teach you the basics of throwing and help you to make a few basic forms.  Then, all you need to do is come back and pick up your masterpieces around four weeks later.

Really enjoyed our Taster session. Staff were attentive and patient as I'm definitely not a natural! Bought this as a gift for my sister and we were both impressed with the professional yet friendly attitude. Easy to find and welcoming! Used the wheel but also had other opportunities to explore so very accommodating to what would give us the most from the session. Looking forward to picking up our masterpieces soon!
