Beginners Wheel-Throwing Class

2 Hour Class 

These two hour classes are designed for complete beginners or for people in a very early stage with their throwing. This may also mean that you have not done any wheel-throwing for a long time. If you’re unsure of whether or not these classes are for you then please do get in touch with the studio.

These are fun classes for 1, 2, 3 or 4 people and will take place at the Jo Davies Studio with one of Jo’s highly experienced assistant tutors using Jo’s methods of teaching throwing. The classes can be treated as a one-off experience or block bookings of classes can be made.

Saturday Classes:

Classes on Saturday are available to be booked every week at the following times: 9:30-11:30am / 12:30-2:30pm / 3-5pm

Weekday Classes:

Weekday classes are available at flexible times, including some evenings, but all are subject to availability.

All class bookings should be made in advance and are subject to availability.

You are welcome to contact the studio prior to purchase to enquire about the timing of the class in order to check availability. Alternatively, once you have purchased a class via this page, we will be in touch to arrange a time.

These classes are intended for adults.

The classes take place at the studio where it's also possible to purchase items from the Jo Davies Collection. 

What's included:

All materials

All tools and equipment are provided

Firing and glazing are included but you may want to glaze your work yourself so just let your teacher know on the day.


Things to consider ahead of the day:

You may want to bring an apron

Wear clothes you don't mind getting splashed - all materials wash out easily though.

We prefer our students to wear trousers or shorts rather than skirts because of the practicalities of throwing at a potter’s wheel (skirts can be a little physically restricting for this activity) but if you’re happy then we’re happy.

Arrive with short fingernails - this is very helpful when throwing and long fingernails can really get in the way of your enjoyment of the process.

Please plan your journey to the studio so you can arrive on time. Classes cannot go on beyond the allocated time and we want you to have the maximum amount of enjoyment from the class.

The Class will take place at the Jo Davies Studio at the Chocolate Factory, Farleigh Place, London, N16 7SX.   MAP

Cancellation Policy:

Your place on a class can be cancelled by you up to 7 days before the date of the workshop but it will only be possible to refund 50% of your fee, if cancelling after this cut off you will forfeit 100% of your fee. This is because we often have to turn away customers when our class schedule is fully booked and we don’t like to have gaps if we don’t need to as we want to make sure as many people as possible can enjoy a class here at the studio.

Cancellation of a class by the Jo Davies Studio will incur a full refund or postponement of the class according to the preference of the customer.
