Course details

Have you always wanted to have a go at crafting your own pottery? Or maybe you’ve been watching The Great Pottery Throw Down and been inspired? Either way, this free Try Pottery course is the perfect way to get your hands dirty and see if it’s for you.

As well as being hugely satisfying, working with pottery is a great way to help you relax and put the stresses of everyday life to one side. On this taster course in our fully fitted studio you’ll start to learn some of the basic skills and techniques needed to shape clay, and at the end you’ll have created something unique to take home with you.

And if you enjoy it, we have plenty of opportunities for you to take your learning further, and maybe be a Throw Down competitor yourself!
