John says “We want people to come here because they enjoy pots, and that includes making them. Beginners are particularly welcome. You’ll find you can throw a recognisable piece unaided within a week-end never having tried before, and you can make fine inventive slab pieces.”
If up to 3 people approach us we can put on a Saturday or a weekday course and devise a programme to suit your aspirations. But fewer skills can be accessed as clay takes 24 hours to dry and become usuable for other processes.
At present we have 2 possible spaces for a Monday 9.30 – 12.30 weekly ‘class’ – throwing and general wheel work. One experienced ‘regular’ needs company. £20 per session.
Please ring to register interest, or book. (01773 603181).
The weekend allows immersion in the potting processes. You can prepare your own clay, throw, design, turn, handle, make larger slab pieces, decorate with slips… and talk it all over at leisure. John will demonstrate any techniques and be on hand to help you implement them. Of course we can’t fire things that week-end but we can arrange for you to come and glaze another week-end if you want.
Maximum 5 students. If you want to ‘reside’ we can accommodate 3 in 1 – double and 1 – single room. The price includes a help-yourself breakfast and a hot lunch and any ten pieces glazed, fired and finished.
£80 per person, including excellent lunch by Pat. Coffee, tea and hard-work throughout the day.
Whatever length of course interests you there will be plenty of hours, constant help on hand, coffee on tap and a good lunch provided. There is a maximum of 5 students on any week-end course to allow plenty of ‘one to one’ tuition.
Our most recent students say “ We have both had a fantastic time, thanks for everything John! And thanks for the fantastic food, Pat. We will be telling all our friends about you.” Jane and David
“Fantastic weekend, great teacher & lovely food. We felt very welcome, nothing too much trouble. Looking forward to having a go at home, it has definitely inspired me. Thank you.” Julie
“I made more progress in two days on the wheel than in three months at night classes … all punctuated by superb food.” Emily
