Are you ready to immerse yourself into the craft of wheel throwing pottery? Join us at POT studios for our 5 day Wheel Throwing Pottery Retreat. Designed for beginners, total immersion is the best way to start learning the art of wheel throwing.
The retreat runs from Monday to Friday between 9am and 3pm each day and space is limited to 6 potters. Each day we'll provide you with a delicious vegetarian lunch (with vegan options) and you'll learn:
The different clays we use for wheel throwing and their unique purposes.
Wedging clay (preparing it for use on the potters wheel).
Centring clay on the potters wheel.
To make simple cups, bowls and small vases.
To prepare pottery for firing.
Where to purchase your own potters wheel, clay and equipment.
Immersing yourself into the art of the pottery wheel is the best way to learn skills that will last you a lifetime. Take a break from work to ground yourself, get creative and make some gorgeous pottery with your own hands.
Glazing and firing of your pottery pieces is included in the cost of the retreat. After the retreat you'll return to the studio to glaze your pottery in the colours of your choosing. We'll then fire your creations so you'll have handmade pieces that will last a lifetime.
