Hands throwing pottery on the wheel

What's On

Throwing Taster

2.5 hour session
Selected Saturdays + Mondays

Feeling inspired by the Great Pottery Throw Down? Have a go at throwing clay without committing to a full course in this taster session.

In this session, you will work with one of our expert tutors and learn about throwing clay on the potters wheel.

After an introductory demonstration, you will have a go at throwing and will create several pots in the process.

This course costs £60 and includes all materials, tools and clay. We will fire up to two of your pots for you to collect from the museum at a later date. We will contact you when your pots are ready to collect, this can take up to 6-weeks.

This workshop is perfect for beginners who would like to learn more about throwing and get some hands on experience in a small group setting.

We recommend trimming long nails prior to the session. Please bring your own apron.
