are your Courses Suitable for beginners?

Yes, our Beginners Wheel Throwing and Introduction to Pottery courses are suitable for all abilities.

For those who would like to develop their practice further, we’d recommend the Advanced Wheel Throwing course, or talk to us about Open Studio access.

What if I can’t make a session?

If you are not able to attend a session, we allow you to come along to another scheduled session - this must be arranged in advance to ensure there is space in the class.

This will enable you to carry on with your work independently - please note this will not be a taught session.

Sorry, we are not able to refund sessions which are missed.

What do I need to bring along?

Just yourself. You don’t need to bring anything else - we provide clay, glazes, tools, equipment, aprons - everything you’ll need.

Will I be able to take work home?
