Throwing taster sessions
Ever fancied throwing a pot on the potters wheel? Bourn Pottery is offering a 2 hour introductory taster session where you will learn to throw a pot on the wheel and have a go at hand-building and glazing a plate, bowl or tile (or whatever you fancy).
This is an ideal session for family groups, groups of friends, children and adults. The session begins with everyone choosing what they would like to make by hand (bowl, tile or similar) and then you will get stuck in with the clay! Once you are confident in your hand-building project, you will pause for a demonstration from Sara on the electric wheel to show how to prepare your clay for throwing, centering clay on the wheel and how to make a basic bowl. 2 people will then use the wheels to have a go at making their bowls, and the other members of the group will continue with their hand-building project, rotating round until everyone has thrown a pot. You can expect to make at least 1 hand-built item which you will glaze on the day and will be fired for you, and 1 thrown pot which will be fired for you. A small additional charge of £3.00 per pot applies if you would like your thrown pot to be glazed for you after it has been fired.
Sessions take place in the studio and cost £35.00 per person.
Please note: Most sessions are shared sessions where a maximum of 6 people use the studio together, but a private booking can be made (Min. 2 and max 8 people) subject to availability usually during the day on Wednesday afternoons, Fridays or Saturdays subject to availability.
All fired artworks will be ready to collect from the studio in around 2 weeks. Please contact me to book.
Social Sharing Sessions
If you just want to book a single place for a Throwing Taster, or you are happy to share the studio with others, then you may like to book for a Social Sharing Session. These sessions are exactly the same as above but you will share the studio with other people who will be working at the same session as you (maximum of 6 people). Please note: these sessions will only run if at least 2 people are booked in.
