In these ‘improvers’ mornings we cover a different simple project each session including candlesticks, storage jars & lids & bowl making. Speak to a tutor when booking if there is a particular project you wish to work on.

Or, for experienced potters, you are welcome ( after an introductory health & safety session) to use one of our wheels for you own projects.
