Weekend Course - Throwing

The throwing classes are open to all levels and are a great way to make big improvements on your wheel ability. There are six wheels so spaces are limited and plenty of individual attention is guaranteed. The classes run throughout the year usually once a month. Times are from 1030am to 430pm and cost is £70 for a one day course. There is a £2.50 per kg charge for pieces that you wish to keep and get fired.

Weekend Course - Raku Firing

The raku process is fast and exciting. There is something very satisfying about seeing the glazes melt and the kiln opening with glowing bright orange pots then covering with leaves and sawdust. In the raku day classes you bring your own pieces to be fired. Times 1030am to 430pm cost for the day £70. Limited to seven participants
