Discover the tactical material of clay and be part of our ever evolving creative community  here at Kite Studios,  join us on an evening of therapeutic play with clay, wellbeing, and socializing. We encourage participants to focus more on the process, particularly if you are new to the wheel, and practice the art of letting go. This includes a cup of tea and mindful start to prepare for centering at the wheel ,  demonstrations and cleaning up.

Our approach is about sustainability and environmentally friendly practices and processes, and therefore we encourage recycling of  clay.
Sessions involve :

  • Best studio practice
  • Preparation of clay
  • Learning how to throw pots on the wheel(We encourage beginners to focus  on centering)
  • Handbuilding techniques

Each week 8 wheels will be available for participants to develop their throwing skills. We will be using Earthenware Terracotta Clay. For those interested in more sustained practice and studio pottery skills development  , you are welcome to book individual studio time which can be arranged either with or without a facilitator.
