Venue, Timing and Cost

New Brewery Arts, Cirencester
Saturday, 22 October 2022 to Sunday, 23 October 2022
10:00 - 16:00

This weekend workshop will be an introduction to throwing on the wheel for complete beginners or those new to throwing on the wheel. On the first day, you will be guided step-by-step through the throwing process, from preparing clay, to centering and throwing cylinders and bowls.

On day 2 you will be able to turn your pots and learn to add a foot-ring to the base. At this stage you can also have a go at slip decoration on the wheel, to add colour to your hand-thrown pots. Whether you are a complete beginner or need refresher, by the end of the weekend you will be confident in throwing your own pots.

This workshop is limited to a maximum of 6 students and you will each have your own wheel to use for the duration of the workshop. After the workshop, we will glaze and fire your pieces ready for collection a few weeks later.

You will be staying in our stylish accommodation on site, The Barrel Store. Accommodation will be reserved for students for the whole weekend and you will each have a room of your own. 2-night stay includes Friday 21st October & Saturday 22nd October. An additional 1-night stay on Sunday 23rd October is an optional extra.

The weekend is fully catered, with an evening meal as well as breakfast and lunch all provided in the cost of the workshop. A welcome dinner will be served at 8pm on Friday 21st October. Breakfast will be served from 8am - 10am on Saturday and Sunday.
