Master the wheel

Come and immerse yourself in the art of pottery making through our range of intimate workshops suitable for all levels. Choose between a 3-hour wheel throwing session for beginners looking to master the basics of crafting mugs, attaching handles and shaping vases. More experienced potters can opt for the full-day workshop to create three pieces from start to finish, including a mug, vase and bowl. For those ready to progress beyond cylinders and bowls, our intermediate offering focuses on closed forms, galleries and lidded pieces. No matter your skill level, our workshops are limited to just three participants and feature plenty of hands-on practice with personalized guidance. The workshop fee covers firing and glazing for your creations. Once complete, we’ll contact you for collection or can arrange delivery if preferred.
