It doesn't matter how much potting experience you have - total beginner or happy hobby potter Dave has plenty of time to tutor each individual, and so the making schedule can be flexible. As Dave is a thrower a large part of the pottery course will be spent on the wheel learning the different techniques, and then decorating your pots ready for the RAKU firing on the final day.
Pottery tuition begins at 9 and we stop at about 11 for a coffee break (cake or biscuits provided!). We then work until 1 pm when we stop for a delicious seasonal homemade lunch. Back to the studio at 2 to 4, when formal pottery tuition ends, although you can work on if you wish. We do not provide dinner on a nightly basis but there are plenty of great places to eat out in the village, from fish and chips to Thai and Indian restaurants to mention but a few!
All pottery courses end with a RAKU firing day, when you can fire pots made earlier in the week. You can take your raku fired pots home with you, whilst the rest of your work can be fired and glazed by Dave and sent to you if you wish. There is an extra cost for this.
