"Messy & Exciting!"

Beginners - come and have a go!

Making a pot on the potter's wheel is something many people aspire to, but learning the basics of "throwing" requires focused, hands-on tuition, so beginners throwing is not something we are able to offer in our group pottery classes.

 

To make throwing easier for beginners we have studied the aspects most people struggle with when first learning to throw, and have devised simple, logical techniques which take the mystery out of the craft and will get you throwing in minutes rather than months!

Our 3-hour Throwing Taster Class will show you all the basics!

If after the Taster Class you're hooked, you can then book a Level 1 Throwing Class to consolidate the basics.

 

Once you have attended both a Taster and Level 1 Class you can go on to use the wheel in our small group pottery classes and we will help develop your skills to include  "turning" the bottom of your pots, throwing larger pieces, attaching handles etc.

Throwing Taster Class:

- Maximum of 3 people

Level 1 Throwing Class:

The exhilaration and excitement of turning a lump of clay into a beautiful vessel is hard to match, so contact us now to start learning this amazing skill!

Experienced throwers are also welcome!

If you are already a competent thrower you can still benefit from sharing a studio space with like-minded creative people. It's near impossible to find inspiration in a vacuum, so a number of our students continue to attend weekly classes despite setting up their own home studios since discovering their love for ceramics at Totem!

Experienced throwers are very welcome to attend our regular group pottery classes. When booking your class please be sure to check with us that a wheel will be available and book accordingly. Find class details, including times and fees, here.

Please note that we do not have the appropriate facilities to accommodate production potters.
