This is the perfect way for children to find out about how to throw on the potters wheel or glaze pots. This voucher is for one child, and the session will focus on the basics of throwing, practising how to centre the clay and pulling pots.
The Children’s Pottery Experience is great fun for any child over 4 years old and perfect to enjoy with a friend or sibling.
Children get tired if they try to work too long on the wheel so I have planned an experience just for them.
We start with some time on the wheel giving them the chance to have a go and to throw a pot. They then have a go at making a thumb pot and with that they are then able to go on and make an animal out of 2 thumb pots put together.
Students will be guided step-by-step through each hand movement, learning how to control the clay. Time will be spent focusing on how to form cylinders and simple bowls, and variations of these forms.
Taught sessions are 2 hours plus ½ hr break.
Your child can come back and decorate their pot about 3 weeks later, this will take about ½ hour, or if you prefer your child will be able to decorate one of my beakers that they can keep and I will decorate their pot later.
