90 minutes of personalised wheel tuition.
These sessions are focussed but relaxed. They are ideal for those with limited or no experience who would like to spend time learning a specific skill or skills.
Maybe you have previously taken a short course or taster session and want to take your learning to the next level.
I can help you troubleshoot and develop your emerging wheel skills at your own pace. The content of each session can be tailored to you. Just let me know before the session what you would like to cover and that will be our focus for the session.
If you are a total beginner, that is fine too :) We will start at the very beginning, with learning how to centre clay and throw cylinders.
You will gain confidence and make leaps with your throwing skills and I am happy to share all I know :)
These sessions are intended to help you learn and develop your skills through practise, so most pots will inevitably end up in the reclaim bucket. It is good to slice your pots in half from time to time to see how even the walls are, and how they can be improved. You may wish to experiment with how thin, high or wide you can push the clay.
The firing and clear glazing of one pot* per session per person is included, however, If you wish to keep additional pots you have made, this is possible with an additonal firing charge of £5 per pot.*.
*includes pots measuring a maximum of 20cm diameter and 20cm tall. Larger pots may be charged for based on weight according to our standard price list on display in the studio. Any extra pot charges are payable at the end of the session or run of sessions.
Please see our Covid Secure Guidelines to fully understand how sessions will be running during this time.
