Service Description

Choose between a private 2 hour session in wheel-throwing techniques or handbuilding. A Throwing lesson is perfect for those who are keen to try their hand at the pottery wheel. Handbuilding lessons are a brilliant way to express your creativity in clay, turn your ideas into creatures, sculptures, pinch pots, tiles and more! Session prices include 2kgs of clay per person and the bisque firing of your pieces. One shelf of kiln space (30cm diameter) will be available for firing finished pieces per session. Fired pieces can be collected from the studio 4 weeks after the class, or they can be posted out at an additional cost. In throwing lessons, one wheel will be available per pair of participants. One person will be at the wheel at a time so that pairs can take turns and learn from each other throughout the session. Pieces will be trimmed for you prior to firing to prevent any rough edges. Please wear suitable clothing to your session, it will get messy! Access to the studio is up one flight of stairs, unfortunately there is no lift available. There is limited parking available at the studio on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please do not park in spaces with signs dedicated to specific businesses in the courtyard. There is a disabled parking space available outside unit 1. If you have any queries regarding access, please email us; ajsimpsonceramics@gmail.com Please arrive no sooner than 10 minutes before your lesson and leave no later than 10 minutes after it has ended to allow the other sessions to run smoothly. Disclaimer; I can take no responsibility for damage to pieces during firing. Pottery can be unpredictable and sometimes pieces can crack or explode during firing. I cannot guarantee creations will survive 100% of the time. 1:1 Adult (16+) – THROWING £150 1:1 Adult (16+) – HANDBUILDING £135 2:1 Adult (16+) – THROWING £250 2:1 Adult (16+) – HANDBUILDING £220 Parent & Child – THROWING £195 Parent & Child – HANDBUILDING £180
