General Pottery Course - 9 weeks
This pottery course is suitable for complete beginners or intermediate potters who wish to learn from scratch or broaden their knowledge of different pottery techniques. This is an excellent course to take if you want a broad overview of some of the different possibilities available when using the amazingly versatile medium of clay.
In these structured pottery courses you will learn different hand building techniques (coil, slab, and press mould) as well as having an introduction to throwing on the wheel. You will also learn how to use slips, underglaze colours and glazes. By the end of the course you will have learnt enough to use the Open studio facilities here if you feel confident enough to work unassisted or you may choose to receive more tuition by taking another general or wheel course.
Wheel Courses - 8 weeks
This wheel course is suitable for all levels from complete beginners to Maestro!
This is a structured course for anyone who wishes to learn to throw or who can already throw but wants to improve their throwing skills.
When you have completed the course you will have learnt enough to attend our Open Studio to practise what you have learnt as long as you feel confident enough to work independently.
You may attend the course as many times as you wish as the teaching is individually tailored to your current level of skill.
A great, friendly place to learn a new skill and show a little (or a lot) of creativity
I feel lucky to have found a well equipped studio I can work in so close to where I live. Roberto is incredibly patient and helpful and provides a workspace for people of all ability levels. A lovely atmosphere.
Motivating, relaxed, helpful, a joyous place to learn a new skill.
