What to expect from the experience

Our focus is throwing – working with clay on the wheel.

In this hands-on class, you will learn how to wedge (prepare the clay), centre (secure the clay on the wheel), and, of course, throw (pulling up the walls of the clay into a cylinder).

Whether you book for yourself or with a group of friends, this is a wonderfully social and spirited introduction to the joys of throwing. This traditional craft provides a counterbalance to the hyperactive, mechanised, and technologically saturated metropolis.

The hands-on practice of throwing opens dormant creativity and encourages therapeutic transformation.Clay is a grounding medium: humble, of the earth – and working in clay grounds the individual and the potting community through the making process.

Out of something formless and basic an object of use and beauty can be formed through careful hands and sound intent. Throwing in clay links the maker to an ancient human history of ceramic creation. The skill-set required – patience, diligence, calm, repetition, humility – constitutes a therapeutic way, almost contemplative in effect upon the practitioner.
