Service Description

The perfect way to experience making pottery on the potters wheel. This taster session is ideal for absolute beginners, you will watch demonstrations and be given hands on support from our expert tutor who will guide you through the different stages of creating a pot on the wheel. You will be shown how to centre and open out the clay, how to create a wall to make a vessel and how to finish your piece so that it can be dried and fired in the kiln. You can choose up to three pots to fire and glaze that you can then collect later. It’s a fun and enjoyable way to experience working on a potters wheel, and if you want to continue to build skills after your taster session you can explore our more in depth bookable potters wheel courses at the studio. The sessions take place in our dedicated pottery studio at Higherford Mill in Barrowford, Lancashire, BB96JH. The studio is fully equipped with six potters wheels ensuring every person attending the session gets plenty of time on the wheel.
