Taster Throwing Sessions

Have you ever fancied throwing a pot on the electric potters wheel? Come join me at my wheel and see what it's like. Throw as many or as few as you like in that time.

I'll glaze and fire any creations you want to keep and I'll email you when ready to collect. 

How it works: I do a limited number of throwing taster sessions on my Shimpo Whisper electric wheel in central St Albans - for individuals or small groups. (I currently only have 1 wheel). I’ll do a demo, then be close on hand to help where needed. 

  • Individual or small group / family sessions

  • Suitable for any age

  • Weekdays, evenings, weekends - all possible. However only a limited number of sessions are available 

  • Gift voucher options

  • All creations will be fired and glazed (typically within 3 weeks).

Recent sessions have included: a Grandmother/ Granddaughter throwing session; 50th birthday treat - throwing & handbuilding for 3; a 70th throwing extravaganza for 1 (gift voucher) and various individual or small group throwing sessions, and personal well-being sessions. 

I have also run clay modelling & making birthday parties (pricing on request).


Email from a recent session:

“Hi Fiona Just a quick message to say a big thank you for yesterday. C obviously had a fun time under your (her words - excellent instruction, and assistance.) And enjoyed, the company, the session and getting down dirty! She was really buzzing when she got home.”



• Covid: we’ll make sure we comply with whatever precautions are needed. If you’re not all feeling perfect, its OK to cancel, or rearrange at short notice
