NOVICES WELCOME!!

Come and experience a fun and muddy weekday evening or weekend session throwing on a potters wheel with me, Paddy Hartley at my London Bridge ceramics studio just 3 minutes walk from Shard. My 2 and a half hour sessions for 2 friends (on one ticket) will introduce you to throwing on the potters wheel and is geared towards first-time pottery novices.

The first hour of our session is all about focussed, friendly instruction for you and a friend in 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 zing before the final challenge, cutting your pot from the wheel.

The second period of the 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.

If you enjoy the experience, you can book further tuition and wheel time sessions if you wish to hone your newly acquired throwing skills further.



SESSION NUMBERS, TIMES, DATES:

WEEKDAY PARENTS SESSIONS: 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!). I also run weekday daytime sessions specifically for deserving parents wanting a little funtime on the potters wheel without keeping one eye on the little treasure. Offload the little treasure on an unsuspecting Grandparent and enjoy some muddy 'you time' in a child free environment!

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.

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
