We’re excited to be introducing a unique new throwing course in 2020 - the opportunity to make a teapot and mugs over a weekend! The course is suitable for both beginners and improvers.

Day one will cover the basics of throwing on the wheel, starting with making cylinders to turn into mugs, followed by throwing the various components needed to make a teapot. Beginners will be supported as they learn to throw, improvers will be able to throw more ambitious shapes and also pick up new tips and techniques.

Day two will cover turning (finishing) the components and joining them together into a teapot, as well as making handles for your teapot and mugs. We think you will be amazed what you can achieve!

The teapots and mugs will then be fired and glazed by tutor Bill Moore, ready for you to collect four weeks later.

The course is limited to 5 spaces, providing a large amount of one to one tuition throughout the two days. Each student will produce at least one teapot and one mug, as well as a few other items.

Students are asked to bring their own packed lunch but tea and coffee will be provided.

Tutor Bill Moore has over 25 years of experience throwing on the wheel, including as a production thrower. He has developed a unique approach to teaching and over the last decade has taught countless people to throw. Beginners are guaranteed to be able to throw confidentially by the end of the course!
