Pot Throwing Taster

Held on a Friday each month

COST: £85

For anyone who has wanted to throw a pot on the potters wheel but has never had the chance!

Here is your chance!

I will teach you a simplified way to throw small pots on the wheel. Not only will you be throwing your own pots within the hour, you will also be decorating them with coloured slips (liquid clays).

This Throwdown may satisfy a curiosity but it may also whet an appetite. Throwing on the wheel is strangely addictive!

Classes are limited to 8 with each having a dedicated wheel.

The cost includes having your favourite pot glazed and fired and posted to you, or 3 of your pots glazed and fired and ready to collect in 4 weeks.

Ruardean Garden Pottery is a professional production workshop established in 1979. For 25 years the pottery produced a wide range of wheel thrown terracotta.
