My name is Mihaly Herczeg and I am an entrepreneur, maker, who likes experiments and challenges at the same time. I fell in love with clay, especially with porcelain when I started to learn throwing.
After years of practicing and playing, I designed and made all of the tableware in my restaurant, at The Rosemary. Throwing is like being in your self-made world. I realised that many people would like to have this experience with the clay. I have started to teach during the pandemic and I enjoyed that as much as the throwing itself.
I can offer a taster session or a beginner course, which includes 4lessons and takes you through making basic shapes, finishing, glazing and firing too. My classes are different than others because is a small class with max. 7 people and I can give you all the help, tips, correcting mistakes, what I made before (for example: breathing well is crucial at throwing). Also, if you sign up for any of my classes, you will be a part of the thrower students online hub, which can help you to be motivated, inspired and following each other progress.
