Our hand building class takes place on Thursday nights each term. Beginners with some or no pottery experience are welcome.

why learn with us?

Pottery opens up many creative and artistic possibilities. Using only your hands, clay and a few simple tools, it can be a meditative and captivating experience.

We believe a solid foundation is essential to making pottery. Mastering your skills is a gradual process that needs both time and regular practice. This is why our courses have been designed to build your confidence and experience week by week, deepening your new skills and understanding of ceramics as an art form.

You will learn about:

  • Clay preparation
  • Common making styles & techniques
  • Ceramic design principles
  • Glazing & surface decoration
  • The firing process

Each class includes instruction from your teacher, as well as time spent on your own work. This will give you the space you need to learn, practice and develop your skills.

All students participating in our term courses will have the opportunity to use the studio outside of class hours. Students who have already completed a term with us will be given four hours of free studio time.

At the completion of your course you will have the confidence & skills to make your own hand made cups, bowls and other vessels.
