Why not have a go at pottery with your friends or family by booking out our studio for a group session?
If you've never used a pottery wheel and you'd like to try with friends, family, or teammates then this is for you! You'll have your own teacher and the studio to yourselves. Total beginners are welcome!
Group bookings are available at the Jericho studio on the first and last Sunday morning of every month with a start time of 9.30 am, from March 2023. Sorry no other times are available .
These sessions are not suitable for children under the age of 12 and participants aged 12-18 must be accompanied by at least one adult throughout the session.
We have four wheels in the studio and there are two types of session available:
Groups of up to four people:
A one hour class plus 15 minutes cleaning up time.
Total session of 75 minutes, from 9.30 am to 10.45 am. Total Price £120.
Groups of up to eight people:
A two hour class plus 20 minutes cleaning up time.
Half the group will hand build and half will use the wheel, then halfway through the class we'll swap round.
Total session of 140 minutes, from 9.30 am to 11.50 am. Total Price £240.
Pottery is a craft and it takes years to master so please come along to enjoy the experience rather than expecting to make a masterpiece! Please note, at the end of the session anything you have made will be too wet to take away. If you want to keep anything you've made, it will need to be fired in the kiln. This uses a lot of energy - it goes in the kiln for about 12 hours at 1000 degrees centigrade - and once it is fired it will not bio-degrade. So we ask you to think carefully about this please. If you do want to go ahead we charge a nominal cost of £5 for every piece to cover the electricity costs.
Please bring an apron!
To book a session go to the Book Online Page and find the date in the calendar. If you want to book a 2 hour session, book for one hour and we'll send you a link to make the rest of the payment a bit later.
Payment for one hour sessions is made at time of booking and includes a deposit of £50 which is non refundable if you cancel less than 72 hours before the session is due to start.
If you do not show up for your session you will still be charged.
