Pottery and Clay Modelling

throwing a pot

The Pottery Studio at Waunifor is situated within the lovely grounds, with views across the beautiful Welsh landscape. It is fully equipped with three wheels, and all the necessary tools. We recommend you wear your oldest clothes – throwing is a very messy activity, but so enjoyable!

There is plenty of individual attention, so the sessions are equally suited to beginners and those with experience. Our participants always find our pottery sessions very productive. Throwing on the wheel takes years to perfect; nonetheless, after a half day in the workshop, a beginner is likely to find that they have produced three or four simple, very usable thrown pots. By the end of a week, you will become a competent thrower. These will be fired and glazed for you after you leave; the cost of firing is included, but not the postage. Accompanied children are welcome, but please check if the sessions are suitable for the age of your children. There is a maximum of 3 people for throwing. The expert pottery tutor is David Small, who has a life-time of experience. He thoroughly enjoys helping others to learn his special skill.
