July Taster dates
What you will learn
1 off group Taster classes are perfect for beginners, for a hands on experience with the potter’s wheel.
The cost includes your tuition ( 2 hours ), clay, tools, glaze and the firing of 2 pieces.
This is a Taster Class made for fun and designed to give you the opportunity to try your hand at the pottery wheel. Whether you’ve never sat at a potter’s wheel before or you would like to re-connect with clay, we know you will slip into this 2 hour session and simply enjoy the experience.
Our Taster classes are generally scheduled on select Saturday afternoons throughout the year. At the completion of this 2 hour session you will have gained a basic working knowledge of the clay-ceramic process. Bring your list of questions and we will seek to demystify clay, glazing and firing as much as possible.
If you are considering joining up for a term in the future, Taster classes offer a great opportunity to preview the StudioMade studio experience.
Keep in mind, this pottery session is about fun – take the pottery wheel too seriously today and it could end in frustration – like a musical instrument, it’ll be dedication and practice that creates the magic.
You will most probably have one or 2 acceptable ‘keepers’ at the end of this class, – too fragile to take home on the day. If you wish to keep a piece or two we can bisque fire your ware once it has dried and then we can custom glaze your work for you – a selection of house glazes will be available to choose from.
