POTTERY WHEEL EXPERIENCE SUITABLE FOR

Adults and children from 8 years and above

THE POTTERY WHEEL

We will have from 1 to 4 guests on the wheels from members of the same household/ bubble in a private class, booking daily  between 9 30 am and 5 pm

TO BOOK

Simply give Rachel a call on 07970793727 to buy a experience or alternatively by one line.

Once your guest receives your voucher which is generated by return email on our eCommerce shop,  They just need to call to arrange a date to suit them. Vouchers last 12 months.

The well-equipped studio has 4 static wheels as well as smaller portable shimpo wheel which we use to go mobile  within a 50 mile radius of Pontefract, or you can hire the portable wheel for £100 for a week with a bag of clay and tools with colour. We then charge per pot for firing and glazing.

Our most senior potter was 95 years old and it had been on her bucket list for 50 years

So if it is on your bucket list of experiences to have a go or if you just want a really different experience then call Rachel today.

25 Years Experience

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Rachel has been teaching the wheel for over 25 years and has a real passion for it no matter how young or old you are. Nothing is too much trouble for her.

On all the below experiences you make 1 to 6 pots depending on which one you book and in all cases you will paint your pot on the same day, or you can book a painting session at a later date at £4 for 2 hours should you rather just make pots on the day.  The pot/pots will then be fired to bisque temperatures making them food safe and functional. They are then glazed  and will be ready for you to pick up within approximately 8 days. Alternatively, you can have them posted out to you for an additional cost of £10
