Pottery Wheel Courses
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.
The course is expertly taught by Roberto Gagliano himself.
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.
I've been using the studio for 3 years now. Roberto has always treated me and my work with the utmost respect. From when I was a complete beginner starting in his classes, to now working weekly in Open studio. It's a wonderful place to make my art.
Roberto is a gifted teacher and his workspace is a fantastic thing for Brighton. A working pottery in this day and age? Rare. He deserves every success.
I have been attending both classes and Open Studio sessions at Pottery Gagliano for around 18months. Roberto is a kind, patient and considerate teacher who always has time and advice for all his pupils and enables people at all levels of experience to create unique works of art. The studio is extremely clean, tidy and well equipped with over a dozen wheels and every possible tool for hand building along with a comprehensive selection of underglaze pigments, slips and gorgeous house glazes (both stoneware and earthenware). Highly recommended, Pottery Gagliano has become like a second home to me.
The next term of Pottery courses will begin in April 2019. Please join our mailing list to recieve the dates as soon as they become available. All bookings are made through the website.
