Private pottery wheel workshop for one

Alice has shared her pottery skills with people all over Bristol, and in this experience at Trylla you'll get her undivided attention, learning the techniques to start your pottery journey or simply have a fun few hours creating your own clay pieces.

You will start with a ‘practice pot’ guided by Alice, and will then you'll have the chance to create additional pots, with the focus being on perfecting your throwing skills.

We aim for you to be able to throw solo by the last pot. Generally forming the pots will take us to the end of the experience but if there is time you will also be able to decorate your pots with coloured clay slip. Your pottery will be left with us until the clay has completely dried, they will then be trimmed by hand, fired and glazed with a transparent top coat, ready for you to pick up around 3 weeks later.

Age restrictions: 16+

Adult £70
