My half an hour Throwing Taster Voucher is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to try throwing on the potter’s wheel. I will give you my undivided attention so you can quickly understand the different stages in manipulating clay to produce a simple bowl.
You will be offered the chance to fire your bowl with a clear glaze and collect it 1-2 weeks later.
What You Will Learn
During the session I will demonstrate the steps to make a cylindrical form. This is the basis of all shapes that potters throw from. I will then guide you through the same steps to help you find your own ‘throwing formula’. By the end of the session you will understand how clay responds and the foundation steps required to make simple forms. Hopefully you will end up producing a small bowl which can then be fired.

My studio is a well equipped, converted single garage with patio doors opening out to my garden. This makes a lovely location for all seasons.
