2 Hour Class arranged at the convenience of student and tutor. 

£50p/h inclusive of materials and kiln firing for one student

These lessons are designed for beginners, intermediate or advanced learners wanting to improve or learn throwing.

Beginners' first lessons will start with learning to wedge clay, centering on the wheel and making a simple cylinder vessel - the starting point of all functional shapes on the pottery-wheel and move on to more advanced shapes depending on the progress of each student.  Further lessons will progress to other forms, such as cups, bowls, plates and will teach you to turn the bases to finish your items.

Intermediate and Advanced students will be assessed individually for their learning requirements, a lesson can be used to troubleshoot recurring issues.
