Private pottery wheel workshop for two

What you'll do

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 Kate, 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 fired and glazed for you ready to pick up two weeks later.

COVID-19 guidelines

In this private class you'll have your own potter's wheel to share, while Alice demonstrates on another wheel from a social distance.

On the day

You will be provided with aprons but 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. Don't forget to bring a mask with you - as you will need to wear it for the session.

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.

Her goal with Trylla is to make ceramics more accessible to all budding potters in Bristol. It’s an emporium of weirdness, with walls covered in oddities in every colour you could imagine. Trylla has regular pottery experiences from wheel making to hand building, with a rainbow of glaze colours available. It also has a shop selling ceramics supplies and a range of handmade products from local makers.

Katie Inglis

Katie and her degree in fine Art, but discovered her true passion in ceramics two years after she graduated. Since falling head over heels for pottery Katie has spent all of her free time learning about and practising her craft. At the heart of Katie's love for pottery is a burning curiosity about the chemistry of the clay and the glazes she uses. She daydreams about geology often.
