Courses to Fit Your Needs

taster course

This taster course is for individuals, couples, families and friends and is a fantastic opportunity to get your hands in some clay, as well as making something fun and useful.  Learn  about pottery processes and techniques, and gain practical experience of working with clay. Anything made can be dried, fired and glazed for you to collect at a later date or you can return for a glazing class.

 You will  hand build pots and take turns to use the potters wheels. Up to 3 people per session, aprons can be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own.  

At the end of the session you will select 3 of your best pots to be left at ‘All-Year-Round’ for firing and glazing. Extra items may be fired and collected by you at a cost of £8.50 per kilo. Finished pots can be posted to you for £5-£10 depending on size and weight and they will be posted Royal Mail Second Class.  The process of drying, firing and glazing will take many weeks. 

These classes are for adults and children aged 12 and over.

Participant's feedback:

“I attended a taster session with 4 other people, a lovely warm relaxed atmosphere, with Pat’s clear instructions and gentle guidance we all made some great pieces. I’m looking forward to collecting the finished items. If you want to try something creative and make some great pots I can definitely recommend All Year Round Pottery.    Sandra - March 2019”
