ADULT ONLY Speed Pottery on the Potters Wheel in London Bridge. 2 and a half hour sessions. Weekday Evenings and Weekends (Inc Holidays) NOVICES WELCOME! Ever fancied the challenge of creating a masterpiece on the potters wheel? Come and experience a fun and muddy experience throwing on a potters wheel with me, Paddy Hartley at my London Bridge ceramics studio just 3 minutes walk from Shard. My 2 and a half hour sessions for 2 friends (on one ticket) will introduce you to throwing on the potters wheel and is geared towards all you first-time pottery novices. The first hour of our session is geared towards friendly instruction on how you and a friend can get to grips with making pots on the potters wheel. You will learn how to centre your clay, how to open your centred clay and how to draw up the clay walls of your pot. I'll also show you some quick and simple decorating techniques for that added zing before the final challenge, cutting your pot from the wheel. The second period of the session is a timed 'speed-pot' where you and your friend take turns applying all you've learned in 5 minute quick fire 'pot-offs' on the wheel. You'll also experience throwing with your eyes closed relying entirely on touch alone and you'll be AMAZED at the results! The emphasis is on fun and learning as much from what goes wrong as what goes right. Choose your favourite pot at the end of the session for glazing and collection at a later date. You can book further tuition and wheel time sessions if you wishing to hone your newly acquired throwing skills further.
