Throwdown Challenge

Would you like to learn how to throw a pot?

Here is your chance to get some one-on-one training.

I would recommend starting with a Taster Session which lasts approx. 90 minutes. I can tailor the content to suit your needs whether you are an absolute beginner or if you already have some throwing experience.

After this you can decide if you would like to take it further – perhaps making a block booking based on what you would like to achieve at the end of the course. I can help you to gain a better understanding of the process and show you how to improve and hone your throwing skills and technique.

At the end of your course you will have the chance to glaze and decorate your pieces – to be fired in the *next available kiln firing ready for your collection

(*NB: allowing time to have enough pots to fill the kiln means there will normally be a few weeks between firings). Pots are charged according to weight and size as per below. 

Charges for Finished Pots (Fired Size)

Standard size pots / kg£17.50
Tall pots > 11cm H / kg£20.00
