taster sessions & courses

For complete beginners these classes provide an insight into the possibilities of working with clay.

One-off taster sessions: We introduce people to throwing on a wheel and a range of hand building skills through demonstrations and plenty of hands on exercises. We then fire and glaze 3-4 pieces of work that you make, which can be collected 3-4 weeks later (it’s a lengthy firing process!). We also walk you through other skills such as decorating and how glazing works, providing a good understanding of what goes on in a ceramics studio. Sessions are 4.5 hours long, they currently cost £95 pp but due to increases in overheads our prices will be increasing to £110 pp for one-off tasters taking place from June 2024, this includes all materials and firings, meaning that there are no additional costs. There are a maximum of 14 people in a class with at least 2 experienced teachers taking care of the group.

In week 5 you will be taken through the glazing process and glaze the work you have made. These sessions will be held in the class area of The Kiln Rooms where we create a comfortable, fun environment for everyone to enjoy. No need to bring anything with you as we’ll provide all materials, tools, aprons and equipment needed. There are between 10-12 people on a class.
