Wheel Throwing Classes

We are now offering wheel throwing classes! These 1-1 classes offer you intensive time with a tutor to learn the art of wheel throwing.

Classes last one hour – sessions are available on Sundays and Tuesdays or by request.

Cost:
1 hour wheel throwing tutorial for one: £30

Please note, we encourage you to edit and be selective with your wheel throwing as this is the best way to learn! Therefore keeping items you make is not included in the price of the class. If you would like to keep anything you make during a tutorial, speak to your tutor and they will arrange for it to be fired. This will incur an additional cost dependant on the size of the work.
