Private pottery wheel workshop for two

Ever wanted to experiment with creating your own ceramics? In this private experience for two you'll have the opportunity to learn the basics of throwing on the pottery wheel.

You'll start with how to centre the clay and then move the wheel to form small pots. Using a ‘practice pot’ guided by Alice, you’ll then move on to creating pots in turn to perfect your throwing skills.

If there’s time, you’ll also be able to decorate your pots in your choice of coloured clay slip. Your pottery will be left with Trylla to dry and then be trimmed, fired and glazed for you ready to pick up around 3 weeks later.

Age restrictions: 16+

It's advisable to wear clothes you don't mind getting a bit messy! Some of the clays can stain white clothing so avoid wearing white to your class. Bring a mask with you - just in case.

The shop is right near Bedminster Parade so it is easily accessible from the centre of Bristol on the bus via the M1/ 24 / 75 / 76 busses. There is also Bedmister train station a 15 minute walk away.
