PARENTS SPECIAL: Speed Pottery Ceramics Throwing taster sessions for 2 people.

Drop the kids off at nursery/school and treat yourself to a fun daytime speed pottery session for you and a friend!

Daytime Weekday 2.5 hour sessions between 10am and 3pm.

Including All Public Holidays

NOVICES WELCOME!!

So you are a parent who feels like you are focussing all your attention on your little darlings are they are the ones having fun at playgroup, at the ballpool, on the bouncy castle..... It doesnt have to be that way! Drop the offspring off at nursery or primary school or an unsuspecting Grandparent and treat yourself and a friend to a few hours of muddy fun! Come and experience the core techniques of throwing on a potters wheel with me, Paddy Hartley at my London Bridge ceramics studio 3 minutes walk from London Bridge Underground Station. My 2 and a half hour sessions for you and an equally deserving parent (on one ticket) will introduce you to throwing cylinders and bowls on the potters wheel which form the building blocks of all wheel thrown ceramics.

The first hour of our child-free session is all about focussed, friendly instruction for you and a friend throwing on the wheel. You will learn how to centre your clay, how to open your centred clay and how to draw up the clay walls of your pot. I’ll also show you some quick and simple finishing techniques including profiling the base of your pot for that added finish before the final challenge, cutting your pot from the wheel.

The second period of the (still child free!) session is a timed ’speed-pot’ where you and your friend take turns applying all you’ve learned in 5 minute quick fire ‘pot-offs’ on the wheel. You’ll also experience throwing with your eyes closed relying entirely on touch alone and you’ll be AMAZED at the results! The emphasis is on fun and learning as much from what goes wrong as what goes right! Choose your favourite pot at the end of the session for glazing and collection at a later date.

Once you've experienced the Speed Pottery taster session, further tuition and wheel time sessions can be booked with me if you wishing to hone your newly acquired throwing skills further.

FAQs

Is this a group activity with more than just myself and my +1? The session will be run by Me for just you and your +1 so you’ll get undivided attention and tuition throughout the session.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? This is an adult course and only taking bookings for attendees over the age of 18. For particularly youthful looking attendees, proof of age is required.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? The studio venue is only a couple of minutes walk from London Bridge Underground/bus/overground station. A secure cycle parking shed is available though you will need to bring a lock and cyclists use the facility at their own risk and the event organiser cannot be held liable for any cycle theft or damage.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions? Email Paddy directly at paddyhartley@gmail.com

What's the refund policy? 50% refunds offered up until 30 days before the first day of the event. If you wish to reschedule for a course in the weeks/months ahead, this can be accommodated.

Is this event unsuitable for anyone? Some of the materials we will be using are unsuitable for those who suffer from severe asthma, have breathing difficulties, skin allergies or are in any stage of pregnancy. If any of these apply to you, please do not sign up for this event. Im afraid babies and toddlers cannot attend with a Mum and Dad due to the nature of some of the glaze materials in the studio.


I look forward to hearing from you and getting you a little muddy!

Paddy
