Classes for Adults

Beginners are offered all the basic skills such as coiling, slab-building, press moulding and throwing, along with a variety of decorating techniques and glazing.

Each session starts with a demonstration then you are free to make something using a technique you have learned, or work on a project of your choice.

We aim to personalise sessions to facilitate your individual needs and abilities, so no matter what level you are working at you will be helped along the way.
