Throwing Taster Session - 1 hr

Have you ever fancied throwing a pot on the electric potters wheel? Come join me at my wheel and see what it's like. Throw as many or as few as you like in that time.

I'll glaze and fire any creations you want to keep. I'll email you when ready to collect (expect about 3 weeks)


All tuition, materials, firing & glazing included. Vouchers available.


How it works: I do a limited number of throwing taster sessions on my Shimpo Whisper electric wheel in central St Albans - for individuals or small groups. I’ll do a demo, then be close on hand to help where needed. Make as many pots as you like during that time.

  • Individual or small group / family sessions
  • Suitable for any age
  • Weekdays, evenings, weekends - all possible. However only a limited number of sessions re available each week
  • Gift vouchers available
  • All creations will be fired and glazed (typically within 3 weeks).


Costs for throwing-only sessions - (incl all tuition, materials & firing & glazing)

  • 1 hour £65
  • 90 mins - £90
  • 2 hrs - £120

Recent sessions have included: a Grandmother/ Granddaughter throwing session; 50th birthday treat - throwing & handbuilding for 3; a 70th throwing extravaganza for 1 (gift voucher) and various individual or small group throwing sessions. 

I have also run clay modelling & making birthday parties (pricing on request).

My basic offering is for throwing taster sessions; however I am I am quite flexible and can happily work out something to suit.  Please get in touch (email/ phone)
