Throwing on the Wheel Experience
£65.00 – £360.00
Experience learning to make pottery on the wheel! A bespoke class in throwing, with private tuition in our beautiful courtyard garden studio in Shepherd’s Bush, West London.
Suitable for all ages and levels of experience. If this is something you have always wanted to try, come along for a one to one experience. Also great for something different to do with friends or as a family activity. Children as young as four love making on the pottery wheel. Creative, unique and fun.
We also cater to arts and design professionals looking for professional development, corporate team building and skills development for intermediate and advanced learners.
Included in the price
You will get expert private tuition and guidance from one of our pottery team members. All our teachers are highly experienced, many are practicing ceramic artists and potters and above all, all our tutors have a real passion of sharing their knowledge and love of working in clay.
When making your booking, you can choose to include bisque firing, which turns your work into ceramics. To book this, simply add ‘With Bisque Firing’ to your booking notes. You will then need to come and collect your fired work (please check our collection times page). Bisque fired work is then ready for glazing. If you would like to come back to glaze it, book online for drop in glazing sessions.
Bisque firing will not cost you extra. However, most people, especially those on their first try on the wheel, choose not to include this, so as to concentrate on experience over outcomes.
What will I learn to make?
If you’re a beginner, the first project is making a cylinder (tumbler, pencil or brush holder, small wildflower vase) and/or a bowl (coin/jewellery dish, ice cream bowl…) For anyone who has been before, we can give tuition in creating vases, jugs, plates, larger work… let us know if you have a project brief.
The cost is £65 per hour for the first person, and if you would like to invite anyone else to participate in the same session, the price is £23 per additional person per hour. The cost includes expert tuition, exclusive use of our professional studio, materials, tools, and firing, so there are no hidden fees.
Please use the Notes section of the booking confirmation to let us know your preferred session duration, the time and date. Please give us as much notice as possible so that we can find the best teacher for you. Once you have booked email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm a date and time that works for you!
