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 β€˜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. You will be required to pay Β£5 for firing on the day should you wish to fire your items.

Age restrictions: 16+
