Want to try your hand at throwing pottery on a Wheel with our Taster Sessions?
Have you always wanted to have a go on a Potters Wheel?
We have introduced a couple of Potters Wheels to HaaHoos so can offer you the chance to give it a try! You can book a wheel taster session with one of our experts who will teach you the basics in wheel throwing and help you create wheel thrown pieces.
Suitable for ages 11 years and upward. (children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult who is also taking part in the activity)
These are small workshops of between 1 – 4 people so you will receive direct tuition and guidance in the creation of ceramic bowls and/or cylinders. We will provide all the clay, tools, equipment and kiln firing to make your pieces.
We have a number of weekday appointments available throughout the Easter Holidays, please email or call us to enquire about availability.
2 hour session – for 1 – 2 people, £60 per person (single bookings will be grouped to make pairs if necessary)
3 hour session – for 3 people, £60 per person (please note we have 2 wheels so each person will spend some time ‘off’ wheel)
3 hour session – for 4 people, £45 per person (please note we have 2 wheels so each person will spend some time ‘off’ wheel)
The cost includes the firing of 1 thrown pottery piece. Additional pieces can be fired for a fee. Fired pieces will be ready in 2 – 3 weeks. Fired pieces can then be painted in the studio at a later date.
Full payment is taken when booking.
Things to bear in mind when attending a Potters Wheel Session:
- Wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty (we will provide aprons)
- Wear flat, comfortable closed toe shoes
- Remove all rings, watches and bracelets beforehand, it may be best to leave these at home
- Come with short nails
- Tie back hair
- There is no guarantee of creating successful thrown pieces on your first try, come with an open mind and realistic expectations!
