Our 3-Week Wheel Throwing Course is perfect for anyone who is a complete beginner to working with clay and is interested in learning how to throw their own pots, or anyone who has been working with slab building and is looking to expand their clay skills.


The course costs £175 and not only includes 6 hours of expert tuition from our co-founder Caroline Oden but also a set of tools, a bag of clay and the opportunity to take home a wheel to practise on in between classes. The wheel is literally yours to take home and practice on as much as you like before returning it back to The Studio at the final class.


During your first class you expert teacher will take you through the basic skills needed to throw on the wheel, such as clay preparation, centring the clay and pulling up a cylindrical shape (a key part of throwing as this is the basis for all wheel thrown ceramic pieces).


In the second lesson we will revisit all of these techniques, in addition to learning how to 'turn' the bottom of your pots.


For the final lesson we refine and grow on your existing throwing skills; addressing any issues that you have encountered and sharing tips on how to overcome them. Caroline will also teach you how to make useful additions to your pieces, such as adding handles and lips, to change your pots into mugs or jugs.


Included in the price of this course is also the opportunity to have 6 of the pots you have made during the course clear glazed and fired.


These sessions will be held in our Studio in Holmer Green and limited to a maximum of 6 people to ensure that everyone gets the benefit of our teacher's time and expertise.


We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Studio!
