BUY THIS TICKET FOR FOUR 2-HOUR SESSIONS @£190


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-hour sessions will introduce you to the fundamentals of throwing, experiencing various types of clay and experimenting with a range of throwing techniques and tools.

Our first session is all about the fundamentals of throwing. Ill show you various techniques on 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. Ill also introduce you to how you prepare and recycling your clay.

Subsequent sessions will explore throwing cylinders, bowls and (the basis of all throw ceramics) and how more complex functional and aesthetic forms are created. The emphasis is on fun, practice and learning as much from what goes wrong as what goes right!

Your best 2 pots from each session will be fired and glazed. We only fire the very best of your work!

FAQs

Do you take weekday daytime bookings? Yes, this can be accommodated, particularly if mums and/or dads want to come along during the day whilst the little one is at nursery or school (the little ones don’t get to have all the fun making mud pies!). If you want to make a weekday daytime booking, contact me directly and I will create a listing specially for you. paddyhartley@gmail.com

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
