If you would like to have a go at throwing, or if you have done throwing before and would like to refresh your skills, then why not come along for individual tuition. The session is one hour long and will cover clay preparation, centring, and forming. Two of the best pieces produced will be fired and clear glazed for you. You may also book a longer session if you prefer. Please note, I only have one wheel so this session is not suitable for groups.

Classes take place in the friendly and relaxed environment of my own garden studio, catering for up to 6 people. The small group size allows people to pick and choose techniques they enjoy, and to work at their own pace. The courses have a broad outline, however they are also flexible, and you are encouraged to explore your own creative ideas, while I am on hand to offer advice and support with how best to realise them. The studio is well equipped with a wide range of tools, materials and a wide range of ceramics publications and information to inspire you to create work you will be proud of.
