Tue Ages 5 – 11 yrs Create in Clay with the Pottery Wheel, 16:00 – 17:00 | 15 Sep – 20 Oct


In brief

This is a 6 week long Create in Clay with the Pottery Wheel course running in Block 1 of the Autumn Term 2020.


These one-hour classes are perfect for children aged 5-11 years. Each child will have their own work station and pottery wheel. The smaller class sizes and this more intensive style of learning can be better in smaller chunks for our youngest potters.

Times and Duration

This Create in Clay course runs on Tuesdays from 4pm till 5pm during term time, for a duration of 6 weeks, ending at half term. The schedule can be found on our current term timetable (please see Term Time & Holidays link above).

What we do

Each child will have full access to their own wheel and work station within this class. This mimics the set-up of our adult Intensive Throwing courses in that each child will have an individual wheel and more intensive personalised tutorage from our teachers. This smaller class size and altered classroom set up will enable us to offer an extremely high level of quality in the classes whilst keeping everyone safe. This also enables us to be as inclusive as possible as we are able to provide more individualised learning and support – something that will make engagement better for everyone.

The Create in Clay with the Pottery Wheel course is at the core of the Kite Studios’ ethos and perfectly encapsulates our belief that creativity and confidence are sustained and moulded greatly through the sense of touch. The Create in Clay course has been designed to teach and explore all things clay. Starting from learning about design, colour and form to the very nature of clay; the way it is sculpted, the different techniques that can be used to do so, forming clay at the potter’s wheel and even giving the students a chance to put their very own work into the kiln to be fired.

While the outcome of finished pieces helps motivate students, our focus is on engaging everyone in the process while having fun in a relaxed, informal and inspirational environment.

Covid safety

All children will wash their hands upon entering the studio. We also provide hand sanitiser at the door. Please provide your child with their own hand towel and an art shirt or apron to bring with them. When dropping off or collecting your child, due to social distancing measures, we ask that you wait in the street outside the studios. A member of staff will meet you there when you arrive.

We trust that if any learner or anyone in their household is exhibiting symptoms of Covid 19 or has had a positive Covid test, the learner will not be attending. Please contact us if this is the case. It may be possible to re-arrange attendance for another class once the self isolation period is over.
