1-1 Workshop

Pottery workshop for one|Intro to wheel throwing

£65.00 GBP

This 1.5 hour pottery session is perfect for anyone with any level of experience, whether your’e a complete beginner that wants to learn the basics or someone wanting to top up their skills.

If you’ve always wanted to try pottery but don’t want to commit to a lengthy course, then this is the perfect workshop for you. 

In this 1-1 session, I will guide you through the basics of wheel-throwing, where you will create some beautiful and unique pieces of pottery.

At the end of the session, you will be able to pick two items that you have made that will then be trimmed, glazed and fired for you to collect around 4-6 weeks later.

What will I learn? I will teach you the basics of throwing on the potter's wheel, this includes the process of centering your clay, opening it up, pulling up the walls and shaping your piece. 

What will I make? Usually a small pot, vase, bowl or trinket dish. As this is an introductory session, please don’t get frustrated if you don’t walk away with a perfect shape, pottery takes practice so relax and have fun with it. 

What should I bringPlease bring an apron or wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, if possible make sure your nails are short and bring a bobble to tie your hair back.

Please note, this is a private 1-1 session held in my garden studio in Oxfordshire.

If you have any questions or want to organise a session, please send an email to hello@clayandcanvas.co.uk

  • Wonderful 1-2-1 Pottery Workshop with Jess - Rebecca

    "I cannot recommend the 1-2-1 Pottery workshop with Jess at Clay & Canvas highly enough because I had a fabulous 1.5 hours learning enough basic skills to allow me to produce several items on her potters wheel. She was incredibly enthusiastic and her energy and love for this medium infused the lesson beautifully making it a thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying afternoon, all set in a delightful, cosy shepherds hut in a beautiful country setting.

    Her tuition and guidance was informative, gentle and inspiring and I cannot wait to collect the two items she will fire for me. It really was such a lovely experience and would be perfect for anyone wanting to dip their toe into this hobby, or even as a gift for someone special. I cannot wait to learn more and she deserves a 5 star review...I would have given her 5+ stars but unfortunately Patrick Swayze didn't show up behind me at the potters wheel, but I guess you can't have everything can you hehe. Thanks Jess!xxx"
