Welcome; if you have found this page then you have probably been given a voucher from someone quite wonderful for a Pottery Intensive Wheel-Throwing Experience with us.
Contact us or pop into our shop to book yourself in.
Come and have a go at pottery wheel-throwing in St. Ives and be part of the great tradition of St. Ives Potters Our resident potter Angela has been a trained ceramicist for over 20 years and has run workshops for all ages and abilities.
This is a structured lesson exploring how to create different shapes on the potter’s wheel, lasting around 90 minutes.
Learn new techniques and how to create various vessels in this action-packed informative lesson. It is suitable for adult beginners, or those with a little more experience. It is a one-to-one session due to the concentration and individual attention needed.
After a demonstration on centering and cylinders, you will begin mastering the basics. Then you will be set challenges on the wheel, including throwing the tallest pot you can, forming a wide bowl using different throwing techniques, and finally designing and decorating a piece using all the skills you have learnt. Our potter will be with you throughout to tutor and advise you.
You can take away three/four pots from this session, normally leaving them overnight to dry but we can speed-dry them if you are only around for the day.
You can contact us via this form, please include the type of voucher you have and the possible date and time you would like.
