Adult Pottery Throwing Introduction for Beginners.

FOUR 2-Hour session of 1-to-1 tuition

Flexible Weekday & Weekend Sessions between 10am - 9pm, Including public holidays.


BUY THIS CREDIT-TICKET FOR FOUR 2-HOUR SESSION @£190 TO ATTEND AT A TIME OF YOUR CHOOSING.


Come and experience the core techniques of throwing on a potters wheel with me, Paddy Hartley at my London Bridge ceramics studio just 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 the wheel to centre, open and 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.

If you choose to book follow-on sessions to build on your throwing skills, we will explore throwing cylinders and bowls (the basis of all throw ceramics) and as you progress, more adventurous forms. 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! If you don’t want to be limited to firing 2 pots from each session and decide you want to take your throwing to the next level by Paddy can advise you on buying in your own preferred clay and glazes.

FAQs

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.

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
