Private Throwing Session
£85.00 Sold Out
These 2hr* private sessions are held at my studio in East London E3 3LT. Sessions are offered every Monday and Tuesday in August from 9:30-11:30am.
These sessions are perfect for people looking to have their first go at the wheel or beginners who are looking to improve their throwing techniques via a personalised 'trouble shooting' session.
During the session you will be guided throughout the steps to get a lump of clay ready to throw it on the potters wheel. You will learn about the different clays available and their characteristics, how to wedge properly to remove any air from the clay, centre your clay on the wheel and turn it into a vessel through a series of different techniques.
If you'd like to keep your pieces, I'd be happy to glaze them and get them ready for you to collect for an extra £25 for each bundle of 3 pieces you want to keep. You can decide this on the day. Pieces will be ready to collect from my studio 3 weeks after your session so you can go back home with a collection of vessels made by you from start to end.
If you'd like to come back to trim your own pieces and have a second go at the wheel, you can do so by purchasing 2 sessions in total, preferably Monday and Tuesday in a row.
This is a good opportunity to create a beautiful handmade gift for a friend or for your own home while learning something new.
Please bring appropriate clothes to get messy, an apron is recommended.
Feel free to email me if you need more information or have any specific techniques you'd like to try during your session.
*Please note the session includes a 15 minute tidying up before the class finishes and they are scheduled to start and finish sharp on time.
*These classes are non refundable but I'm happy to offer a change of date in case something comes up, I need to be notified at least 48 hrs before the class.
