PRIVATE THROWING SESSIONS with our amazing Artshed Potters!

This is a 2h session for learning the basics of throwing on a potters wheel.

The tutor is able to show you the process of throwing, the preparation of the clay and removal from the wheel. You will turn approximately 4 pots.

Items made will be fired and glazed in clear glaze or you can buy an underglaze painting voucher for £5 per item, come back and paint your pots during our opening times at a time that suits you. We will contact you when your items are ready to be collected.

CHOOSE A DATE AND TIME THAT SUITS YOU AND OUR TUTOR Please call or email us with your preferred dates or add them to the extra details section in the booking cart when you book online and we will contact you to complete the booking.

This workshop is a great gift for someone, we can create a gift voucher for you to give, just let us know its a present and we’ll set it up for you.

You are advised to have short nails for this activity as it is much harder to “throw” a pot on the wheel if you have long nails. Remove any rings, your watch and necklaces (if you are throwing) It’s also a good idea not to wear your best clothes as you might get messy! Aprons are provided.

Want to come along with a friend, we have two potters wheels next to each other so its a great experience to share, its just an extra £35 to bring a friend, just tick the checkbox at the top to add your friend on.

If you require any more information, please chat to our friendly staff on 01920 466446 or email us enquiries@artshedarts.co.uk.
