Potter’s Wheel 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 13 years and upward. (children under 16 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.

2 hour session for 1 person £95

2.5 hour session – for 2 people, £80 per person

3 hour session – for 3 people, £80 per person (please note we have 2 wheels so each person will spend some time ‘off’ wheel)

3 hour session – for 4 people, £65 per person (please note we have 2 wheels so each person will spend some time ‘off’ wheel)

The cost includes firing of two thrown items and the paints and glazing of your pieces. Any additional pieces you would like fired will be charged at £5 each. Fired pieces will be ready in 4 – 5 weeks.
Once fired, book back into the studio during our day time opening hours to paint your pieces. Please note an additional charge will be applied if you wish to paint your pieces at one of our Pots & Pinot adult evening events.
