8 x 2.5 hours Class size 1 to 8     label £280
A comprehensive 8-week pottery course, held once a week, will guide you through every step involved in making a finished ceramic piece – from preparing clay to applying glazes. We will cover some fundamental theory and focus on practising different techniques for both throwing on the wheel and handbuilding. You will get the chance to explore making a variety of shapes such as plant pots, cups, handled mugs and jugs, plates, bowls, and many others:
  • Week 1 and 2: Clay preparation and handbuilding
  • Weeks 3 and 4: Throwing/trimming on the wheel
  • Weeks 5 - 8: Practise and glazing
The course takes place in our studio in the Jewellery Quarter and is suitable for adults who are starting out on their clay journey as well as intermediate makers who would like to improve their skills. Group numbers are capped at 8 people to ensure that every student receives enough one-to-one tuition and to allow a comfortable working environment.
Please note: If you would like to get your pieces fired, there is an extra charge of £5 per kilogram of clay (for example, a regular-sized mug is £2.50). Working with clay is a messy business, so remember to bring an apron and trim long nails as they can get in the way of your creative expression. Please bear in mind that it could take up to a month after the end of the course for pots to go through the final glaze kiln before you can collect them.

I am a ceramicist and teacher, currently based in Birmingham. Craft is my means of navigating the world, a way of life, a source of meaning. My practice focuses on marrying aesthetically pleasing forms with clearly defined functionality.
Through my pottery workshops and taster sessions, I look forward to sharing my passion for clay with you — nothing beats a bit of messy making to help the creativity flow! Hosted in my airy studio space in the historic Jewellery Quarter, you'll discover what makes working with clay such a meditative and meaningful experience.
