New Saturday Throwing Course 

starts 4th May 2024 for 4 weeks

Saturdays 10 - 12.30pm 


The 4 week throwing courses run for two and a half hours per week, including 20 min clear up time, is suitable for beginners and those still fairly new to clay. Friendly and informal, numbers are limited to 5 students.

Classes will cover clay preparation, centring the clay on the wheel, throwing basic shapes and building your wheel skills. Throwing projects will include bowls, plates, mugs and cups, jugs and vases. We will also cover topics such as balance and shape considerations.

As you progress and gain confidence you will be encouraged to work on your own ideas and forms.

There is a small charge towards the costs of materials and firing your pottery.

Matt is available for one-to-one sessions and group experiences​​​​
