The Potter’s Wheel is an ancient craft that fascinates many people, and here at the Pottery Barn, we offer a range of classes and opportunities for all ages and stages.
1. Children’s Clay to Finished pot sessions
For ages from 6 to 14. A short one to one session with the one of our potters to make a pot. Sessions are available on Sundays, Bank Holidays and weekdays during school holidays. It costs £20 to have a throw on the Potters Wheel. Your pot will be fired to bisque, you then return to decorate it, before it is glazed and fired to a finished pot. The complete process in two visits!
2 . Adult Potter’s Wheel Taster sessions
Suitable for everyone who has potting on the ‘Bucket List’, for birthdays, anniversaries or to give pottery a try before booking a class. In a one to one session with one of our potters you will create your first pot! The price includes the firing of your work plus a return visit to decorate. We have ‘hands only’ wheels available, ground floor ‘double wide’ doorways, and supported tuition if requested, so everyone can make something!
