Adult Pottery Wheel Throwing Taster Experience - Sunday 25th July 2021 2pm - 3:30pm
Why not come and have a go at throwing your own pot. This is a opportunity for complete beginners to come and experience the thrill of wheel throwing. We have 4 wheels and so only 4 places are available. The session is one and a half hours long. this includes a 15 min demo introduction and 15 mins clean up time at the end.
You will watch a demonstration of how to throw a pot and then will have time to have a go yourself with help and support from the potter. Don't worry if things go wrong we have spare clay.
We will Bisque fire your pot for you.
Please remember that pots need to be dried before firing and this can take 2 or more weeks depending on the thickness. When you pot is first fired it is then ready for decorating and glazing.
The cost of this is not included but can be done with us using our underglazes in our Happy Potter Pot Painting Studio at a cost of £5 per pot. This covers the cost of underglazes and our transparent dipping glaze that will ensure that your pot is waterproof as well as the second firing. We will notify you when your pot has been first fired.
Please note you are under no obligation to decorate your pot with us - you could paint it with acrylic at home and coat with a varnish - it is your choice, however your pot will not be waterproof.
Please note this is an adult only workshop.
