A single class, designed to teach new students the basics of throwing on the wheel

When: Saturday Afternoon - 1.30pm to 4pm

What you will learn:

  • How to centre your clay on the wheel
  • How to form cylinders
  • How to create simple bowl forms

When you choose this class you get to skip most of the technical stuff and will get away with not having to knead your clay or finish your pieces. 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.

All materials and firing are included in the class price.  Sajo Ceramics Staff will finish your pieces for you after the class.  You will be able to select your 6 best pieces for firing at the conclusion of class.

Enjoyed my birthday present - Wheel Taster Pottery Class First time throwing onto a pottery wheel. It was harder than it looks but you certainly get the idea by the end of the session. The class certainly gives you a taste of what is possible and a new appreciation of the craft. I will be back for another session some time soon. Thank you for a great afternoon. Janette

We had a very enjoyable afternoon doing the wheel taster class. Tuition was great and we were pleasantly surprised that we managed to make a few passable bowls! Would definitely recommend.
