About The Event

A FREE one hour 'fun' potter's wheel taster experience for up to 4 potters per session.

LEVEL: Beginner

This is a chance for aspiring potters to have a little go on a potter's wheel. The session will start with a demonstation on how to centre the clay on the wheel and how to then make a simple wheel thrown pot. Then with a bit of help, each potter will have a go to make their own small pot. This pot can be taken home at the end of the session. If however the potters wish to have their pot glazed and fired in the kiln so that it is food safe, then this can be done for a fee of £4 to cover the glaze, technician time and the kiln costs.

It is best to wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty, however aprons will be provided. Short fingernails are also easier to throw a pot with.

WHEN: Saturday 18th May 2019.

There are 3 Sessions to choose from with a maximum of 4 places on each session. 12 students over the course of the day.

Space is very limited in the studio so only people who are booked onto a session or are there to supervise a child taking part are able to stay.

WHERE: Fancy Frog Pottery, 133 Dean Road, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, YO127JH

Suitable for: Individuals and families with children over the age of 7 years. Children must be accompanied by an adult for hte duration of the session. Unfortunately we do not have a wheelchair accessible toilet as the doorway is too narrow.

This is a chance for aspiring potters to have a little go on a potter's wheel.

Please arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled start time to be ready to start on time. If you book and are then unable to make it, please contact me to let me know so that I may be able to offer your place to somebody else.
