Pottery Courses at Ashbrook Studio

Beginner’s Taster Session
The taster session is an ideal way if you have always wanted to have a go at throwing on a potters' wheel. You will learn to prepare the clay, work with the clay on the wheel and remove the finished item ready for the next processes. It will be relaxed and you will learn at your own pace.

Hand Building
If throwing on a potters' wheel doesn’t appeal, then we offer the chance to hand build. You will learn to prepare the clay, construct a simple vessel using a number of techniques and decorate using clay slip. It will be relaxed and you will learn at your own pace.

But, I can’t draw...’ Many people struggled with this at school, but there is no need to be Da Vinci to enjoy working with clay. When you leave you will have the opportunity of having your work sent on to you after firing and all the relevant course notes relating to your time with us.

We also offer individually tailored courses. We give you our undivided attention, will work at your own pace, and help you develop.
