Couples Workshop

Pottery workshop for two|Intro to wheel throwing

£110 (£55pp)

This 2 hour session is perfect for those with zero experience. You will both get the opportunity to work on the wheel to create your own beautifully unique pieces of pottery. This session includes a 15 minute tea and coffee break.

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.

    "Me and my friend took part in a couples workshop with the amazing Jess from Clay and Canvas. It was both of our first times doing pottery and she made us feel so welcome from coffee on arrival, providing snacks (considering our dietary requiremnets) and being super friendly. Jess made us feel so comfortable explaining clearly and confidently how to begin the craft with a few simple steps. It was an honour for the both of us learning and attempting the craft alongside someone who is invested and truly enjoys teaching others. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking to try something new as it's great value for money and a perfect gift."
