The day will cover the following elements:

There is a maximum of four spaces available on the course so tuition is truly focused. If you book for one person, you have the option to bring a friend with you to observe.

PAST STUDENT SUCCESSES
Everyone will create at least five thrown items. These will be dried, twice fired and clear glazed before they are ready for collection or can be sent too you for an extra charge to cover the P&P.
My Mom and I had the most wonderful day at Matt's class. We'd never thrown clay before, but thanks to Matt's expertise, we'd thrown our first bowl within half an hour, and came away with five pieces (3 bowls, 2 jugs) each!
From Mat & Rachel's warm hospitality, to Mat's patient tutorage and the mesmerizing experience of working on the wheel, the whole day was faultless. I'd highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to scratch a creative itch, try a new skill, or just wants to have fun doing something a bit different!
