As part of our regular teaching program here at Pottery Gagliano Roberto teaches weekly general pottery classes (as opposed to wheel courses) on a Monday and Tuesday. These run three times a year in January, April and September. In addition to this we are now offering a shorter beginners handbuilding class on a Saturday morning. Please see below for more details.
Roberto's General Pottery Course
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 how to throw 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. These courses are taught by Roberto Gagliano himself.
NEW!! Saturday morning beginner's handbuilding course
This is a beginner's handbuilding course running on four consecutive Saturday mornings. This course is taught by Kate Reynolds and serves as a good introduction to working in clay.

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.
